Mercury Tilt Lock

2 posts in this topic

My 2004 Mercury 15hp 2-stroke will not lock in the raised position after only two weeks of use. I inspected the black plastic chock used to hold the motor up and discovered a rounded grove near the edge.

The motor is only raised when docked and never to trailer or transport.

I previously owned a used '00 Merc that experienced the same problem. I replaced the chock only to have the rounded groove reappear after limited use.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is there a solution or a better constructed after-market part that might be used?

Thanks for your response.

I have an early '90's Mercury 15 2 stroke, and have never experienced any problems with the trim settings or the tilt lock. I trailer with it in the down position and in reverse so it can't bounce....The design has probably changed since then. Good luck.
