Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Depends on which unit you have. If you can tell me which unit you have I can help further.
However have you greased the swivel bracket? The swivel bracket is the large part under the block and above the lower unit. Look for the grease fittings on the side.
Symptoms of low fluid usually start with non movement and shaky/ jerky movement. Are you getting any of these?
Disconnect the hydraulic cylinder from the engine, one bolt in the center. See if you can manually move the engine back and forth by hand. See if the hydraulic cylinder now moves.
I need to know what steering system and symptoms. Please answer the posted questions. Yamaha doesn't make the steering.
You may have air in the system, low on fluid or a seal internally may be leaking. Still don't know what system you have.
Is there a name on the cylinder? A logo on the helm?
Let me know if you need help bleeding it.
Thanks, ***** *****'t have to respond.
You'll need to ask this as a separate question. Thanks
