    "You need to see/hear if the pump motor is running, also remove (label) the wires and clean/tighten them on the side of the pump/reservoir unit. See pic below.


    FLUID LEVEL
    We recommend that you use OMC Power Trimflilt & Power Steering Fluid, although OMC suggests that in a pinch you can use DexronB II ATF.
    Fig. 132 Remove the screw to check the fluid level
    1. Position the stern drive in the full UP/OUT position in order to relieve all hydraulic pressure.
    Failure to position the drive unit in the full UP/OUT position before removing the plug could result in hydraulic fluid spraying all over upon

    2. Loosen and remove the fill screw from the side of the pump housing.
    3. Check that the lubricant is up to the bottom of the threads in the hole. If necessary, add more fluid slowly through the hole until the level is correct.
    4. With the fill screw still out, move the drive through its full range 6-10 times in order to purge any air that may have entered the system. Lower the drive fully and recheck the fluid level again; repeat the process if necessary.
    5. Install the fill screw and tighten it securely.
