Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
I have a 1993 boat with a Volvo Penta SX Cobra that has a hydraulic line leak that can be seen under the boat. the end that is leaking is the end on the right side that goes into the hydraulic (lower line). What is needed to to replace this? Are there any special tools needed, the other end of it goes slightly under a cowl into the boat, is this hard to do? What procedure is needed after this line is fixed, i want it to be safe. thanks
note: boat is a regal 176 se valanti
ok after talking to a shop over the phone (this was posted nearly 24hrs before you responded) and they told me this is a pretty big job, they said they needed to remove the cover, possibly the motor, and the job will be just north of $500. Who is right?
