    HYDRAULIC CYLINDERS ON OUTDRIVE-gctid811036

    To lubricate the U-joints and spline on the outdrive of my 1992 TROPHY 2359 I remove the actuating cylinders (mechanically not hydraulically). Over the winter with the lower unit off, the cylinders extend (I assume do to temperature changes). When I put everything together in the spring I have trouble hooking up the cylinders because they do not respond to the up-down control and I can't retract the cylinders enough to be able to connect to the outdrive. I have had to use a pipe clamp to get the cylinders to retract enough to connect to the outdrive. When they are connected, the controls work as they should. Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? I don't like to force the cylinders to retract, but nothing else works.

    Sounds like there was some air trapped within the hydraulic rams. They are functioning fine now? Running the drive trim up/down several times should bleed out any air.
