Bleeding a Seastar helm/Hynautic ram combo
On the final stages of the rebuild and was going to get steering up and running today but hit a couple of issues.
The helm is a Seastar unit and cylinder is a Hynautic K-6. Looking at the info I have so far found, I have backed off the two barbs on the cylinder by 1/2 turn a d hooked up the 'balancing tube' between the two barbs. Also hooked up the oil filler bottle to the helm.
All I have apparently achieved is to fill the helm but no oil making its way down the hoses to the ram
Am I missing something in the procedure?
Any help appreciated as this really is about the last job before she hits the water again
The less time I have to work, the more I get done !!!
