Hydraulic Fluid Quantity

I have a slight ticking on my teleflex helm when turning, its gradually got worse over the past few years. I want to bleed and change the fluid as a starting point before looking at strip downs.

So I have enough fluid or don't over order by masses anyone have a rough idea of how much fluid would be in the system of a 6.5mtr - I would want to get the fluid in before starting.

2 to 3 litres should be fine

If I remember correctly mine took about 4 litre containers to do the job, but I still have 3/4L left. It's worth buying extra as it's not really a job you want to stop doing halfway through.

It's also worth buying the filler kit, or making something that'll do the job. It's messy.

I have a filler pipe from last time. I only had one tub last time so didnt do a full change.
