    Help with the TRIM linkage!!

    Hey all, I have searched on here and can't seem to find anything, its probably just me. Anyway, I noticed that the trim linkage came apart on my '01 SLX 1200. The trim motor shaft comes down through the hull, then the white plastic "disc" somehow attaches to it. I looked at a diagram and it looks like a spring goes between the trim motor and the white disc? (The white disc is attached to the actual linkage) Does this spring hold tension on the white disc so that the pin does not slide out of the trim shaft? Needless to say the pin somehow came out of mine and the spring is obviously gone. If someone has a picture of what it should look like I would appreciate it. I don't have a local place to purchase parts so I am hoping i can adapt from hardware store parts.....
    thanks in advance!!!

    Are you talking about the actual trim motor? I would consider the linkage to be the rod that connects the trim motor to the steering nozzle.

    If so, look into getting another trim motor, and keeping that one for spare parts.

    Basically I need a good photo of how the trim motor shaft connects to the trim linkage. The linkage was still connected to the nozzle but it came off of the trim motor shaft.

    Does the pin have any way to hold it in place? Anybody know how big the spring is, I'm hoping to find one at a hardware store, at least until correct parts arrive.... sorry for all the questions.
