Volvo Penta power steering actuator problems
Greetings all....I have a 2008 280 EC with 8.1 Gi. I purchased the boat 2 months ago and at 361 hrs the power steering actuator siezed up and almost caused a collision with another boat. I had to pull so hard-on the steering wheel that the ram pulled the threading out of the connector that connects the teleflex cable to the actuator. Removed it, replaced it and the new one leaks. What a POS and not rebuildable at $500 -$700 a pop. Has anyone had problems with these junk parts from VP? Is there an alternate solution?
