Anybody know how to bleed the air out of the power trim and tilt unit. I've got a 1999 225 Evinrude and I think there must be air in the trim unit. When I lower or raise the outboard it bounces at the end of the stroke. I have never had any problems before. Thanks

On the Stbd side there is a large fill plug. Tilt the engine up and top off the fluid. Run the unit up and down a few times and top it off again. THe unit will self bleed. Make sure you are using power trim and tilt fluid and not traney fluid.

THey may have called for Dextron back in the 80's. With todays higher hp's putting a stain on the trim system it should not be used. It will start to foam causing air bubbles.
