Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 3 months ago

Ok, when you have it all the way up and take out the cap, does fluid come out?

Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 3 months ago

Ok, when you get it to the top, have you tried to use the manual relief valve to let it down. Then use the system to raise it back up. Doing this a few times should help purge out the air.
