Hey all, I have a sea star hydraulic system on my 150 Yamaha. Each time I take out I need to move steering wheel to left and right to get the play out of the steering. Even then steering is a bit sloppy. Also I have a Simrad auto pilot connected. I looked at the “Bubble Purge” system to purchase but they do caution against using theirs if you also have an auto pilot attached to steering? Anyone have an idea?? I can take to West Coast Marine but would like to save some $$$.

    Take it to Tony at Fishing Boats Unlimited in Costa Mesa, he will use his power purge and will probably be a fraction of the cost. (<$100)

    I'm selling the bubble purge pro for half of what it sells for new, obo, let's make a deal. This is the upgraded version of the bubble purge which can handle autopilot pumps, etc. I used it once and do not need it anymore

    I'm located in SD
