635 rangertimbo Leaky Lencos and pink fluid 9/26/2005 7:34:00

Oops! trigger happy!

Matt,

I leak fluid from the fill valve on the helm pump, but only during the summer
heat. It gets
right warm in the sport cabin when it's closed up tight. What is the warranty
on the
Seastar pumps?

I have a trim tab actuator on order from Lenco. I hope it's easy to install
with a minimum
of four letter words. I don't have the gumption to switch to Bennets.
