How do you get hydraulic oil out of teak deck
Hey Doug - do you know who you spoke with at Teleflex Canada? I ask as I am in the building there. I will ensure that once we get the pump back here we will inspect it and I will let you (and everyone else on this thread) know the outcome...
There are a few problems that can happen, as follows;
* helm check, or, helm pressure relief valves
* power assist spool valve
* faulty autopilot pump.
* contaminated fluid
A lot of customers will jump on the check valves as they seem like a likely culprit, however the majority of free wheel problems are related to the relief valves in the system.
to get to the bottom of the problem you are having, can you let me know your answers to the following;
1. When you first started into this, what was the condition of the fluid?
2. did you notice any pitting of the steering cylinder shaft?
3. do you have an autopilot on board this boat?
