    Exclamation VTS Motor Leak!

    I had a bad trim motor so I replaced it with a new one. Took it out in the water and it started to let a lot of water into the engine compartment. It was flowing in behind the VTS motor, when I replaced it I did not see a seal that could prevent this.

    Any help?

    Not sure about your year doo, but my 98 had bellows over the shaft that moves the nozzle up and down. The bellow are rubber and get old and crack letting water into your VTS housing. It took out my motor.

    What Johnny said ... replace the boot, they wear out and crack. Pack it full of grease too, helps seal out and keep shaft moving without binding, then clamp it correctly.
