PROBLEM leaking hydraulic fluid from hydrive steering
system. check valve cover on raymarine electric pump
type 1 supplied 3 years ago but in service
for 1 year is leaking about 1/4 of a cup of fluid every 6 hours.
is anyone familiar with this unit can someone provide detail to stop the leak without loosing much more oil
can we remove the cap what is inside etc
currently using cooking oil
to top up
Willow is currently en route
Sunsail base in Nah Trang but I would prefer yacht not to go to vietnam for repairs
as no visa or prior arrangement has been made.
Would like to continue on to Hong Kong
