Vetus HTP30R steering pump

For anyone dealing with steering issues, I recently replaced my Vetus steering pump.  The new pump is the Vetus HTP3008R.  My old steering cylinder seems good so I didn't replace it at this point.  I had to bleed the lines and cylinder several times.  The first time, any pressure on the rudder during a port tack would return to center. Mounting the emergency tiller made it easy to watch the movement.  I found it was necessary to fill and bleed the lines with the cylinder in various positions before all the air was out. I couldn't be happier with the new pump.  The install was a quick easy swap.

Best wishes,  JK
