    1999 Polaris MSX Trim

    Just bought a 1050 MSX with 16 hours on it off Craigslist 0n 12-22-09. The trim indicator says it is moving up and down, but it's not. Any idea whats wrong. I did start the engine when I checked it.

    Well, I can tell you the model isn't an MSX

    Maybe SLX

    Often the Trim motor gets rusted up inside the gearbox, and sometimes the problem is a corroded or broken electrical connection.

    Search in the Polaris Tech and General sections. Lots of info on testing, opening, and repairing trim motors.

    Is the trim push rod connected at both ends? Is the plastic gear (attached to the motor) stripped or slipping on the push rod connection?
