How to remove pump from wheel?

Postby legendlc » Tue May 29, 2018 11:25 pm

My transport is picking the boat up on Thursday and I have very little time left to get all the wires and cables disconnected for the flybridge removal. I have all the railing loose and just need to get wiring and such loose. I read in a post here to not disconnect the hydraulic lines for the steering just remove the wheel and push the pump out is what I believe the post read. Is there any special tools or instructions for this? I have a 4 hour drive in the morning to try and make her ready to go before Thursday. I tried searching online but didn't seem to find any useful data.
Also if I have to remove the seat bases I think I understand I need to remove the headliner also? I assume that is removing the wooden strips and taking the headliner down?
Thanks for any advice.

If the steering is similar to my seastar setup on my outboard checkmate you would remove the steering wheel and then there are probably a couple of fasteners that hold the help pump to the dashboard/bulkhead.

Sorry if I have this recollection wrong, but the mfr of the steering system may be Hynautic. Call them for quick, accurate advice. Also, don't recall anyone ever posting that seat base or headliner must come down.

good luck with this big project

Great thanks I was reading and seeing videos of having to use a puller tool to remove the pressed on wheel off. Just making sure I had the correct info.
