For information on tilt and trim products and parts, contact:





            We carry a full line of  tilt and trim products. Below is a sample, we have many more parts available; Contact us with your needs.


We carry the full line of ARCO starters and trim motors, as well as units from the OEMs and other manufacturers. For aftermarket Tilt/Trim units, we carry the Panther brand. We have found them to be both durable, and much more attractive than the competition. We have been selling these for a very long time, and they have proven to be the best. We also carry the CMC brand for an economical alternative.


We also offer a good selection of used motors as well, however, in most cases the price of new aftermarket units is making used a less attractive option. We can help you determine which option will be the best VALUE. Many motors have a bad history, and have been improved in the newer versions. It does not pay to spend time and labor to replace a problem motor with a used version of the same problem motor.


Many customers express great frustration when confronted with the seemingly exorbitant prices of OEM tilt and trim parts. We try to source good quality aftermarket parts to save money, but one must keep in mind these are highly specialized electrical and hydraulic parts, produced in small numbers, with demanding engineering requirements(waterproof, corrosion resistant, high power to weight/size requirement etc.) These are not Chevy windshield wiper motors, made cheap and in millions of units! Most used tilt motors cost 100.00 to 300.00 depending on condition, rarity, availability, and cost of new. Like mentioned before, the amount of work required to change out a tilt motor forces the question; “Is it worth saving a little for a used motor when I may have to do all this work over?”


Used tilt and trim assemblies to upgrade motors without Tilt and Trim



We have a selection of tilt and trims we have taken off of motors for parts. Sometimes used factory systems are the way to go, and sometimes not. Many of the older tilt and trim systems from Prestolite, Calico, Shinko  and other hydraulic suppliers are becoming so hard to find GOOD parts for,  that demand has driven the price for used pieces so high that complete systems are no longer an option. The alterenative is one of the aftermarket systems that go between the boat and the motor, and will fit any make and year of outboard. We have sold, and had very good experience selling the Panther version. Call us for current prices.
