as long as the oil is pumped out of the motor you can not hurt it. if you have a wet sump just add a dry sump tank and pump it out before you tilt and then pump it back in before firing the motor. If you have a dry sump motor the oil is already out of the engine and you just tilt away. also you have to put non venting caps on your trim pump tanks to keep that fluid from coming out.

and make sure your fuel tanks are vented to the high side of the tilt trailer too...
