Lenco trim tabs wanted (12v)

Does anyone have a pair of Lenco 12v trim tabs they want to sell? I am looking for a pair to put on my Scorpion rib. My Bennetts have given up...

I am just about to remove twin ram's of my scorpion. Replacing with lenco. What part of bennett failed. I think lencos are better, faster, simpler, less parts. Amazing warranty and after sales in my experience

Let me know people what has failed, Bennett have not supplied Scorpion directly in some years and I would be happy to help, There is no difference in speed of working of the 2 systems as is shown on many you tube videos, putting electric motors under water comes with its own issues, there is no actual signal from a lenco system for trim position indication its just a timed button press. we have excellent service and warranty if you give my team a call we will be happy to help anyone.

Hi Mark, the Bennetts are 10 years old and the pump is intermittently pushing one tab down a lot faster than the other and one is sometimes not moving at all. When the indicator lights are equal, the tabs are physically at very different levels. My thinking is that they have had a good innings, time to change, possibly keep the tabs, but just remove the 4 rams and the hydraulics, pump etc and replace with 2 Lenco rams, or replace with complete Lenco tab kit.
