Raymarine autopilot fault

Hi all
Just replaced all the seals in my Lecomble and Schmitt hydraulic ram (driven by a Raymarine ST6001). Bled the system and reinstalled in the boat.
Now, when in Auto, if I press +10 or -10 the helm just moves back and forth from port to Stbd and won't settle. If sitting in Auto and the boat moves off course a bit the helm moves back and forth as well.

Any ideas?? It was working fine before, just had a bit of a leak.

Cheers
Gos

Re: Raymarine autopilot fault

Sounds like there's still some air in the system, so additional bleeding might well be in order.
