    A friend of mine has an 93 merc with the single ram trim. There is no external leaks and unit is full, but the trim wont stay up when running. I dont know if there are internal seals bad or what.

    Todd thats wht it sounds like to me. If the cylinder had ever gotten moister in it or ran without oil for extended periods than that can cause the walls to break down or wear. Which causes scatches and gouges that cut the O rings.

    Hope this helps,
