Normally the shift actuator will only shift into reverse if the engines are not running. Do yours  shift properly when the engines are running?

A quick follow up - installation of the PS pump shunt is straight forward and took less than 15 minutes.  Drain tank first - at least below the high pressure output.  16mm and 18mm open end wrenches required.  Refill and system bleed required less than 3/4 qt of PS fluid.  Shunt also came with clear directions with pics but not necessary.  Happy to share with anyone interested - just let me know...

Do you have multiple batteries? Do you have a automatic power steering battery switch?

I just replaced my power steering pump with the latest edition. Its plug and play. Same connectors , electrical and hydraulic.

Mine kept getting hot, so the previous owner cut thrust the top of the lid over the fill bottle and installed a 3x3 suction Fan and I didnt turn it one one day and fried the pump. Now I have a switch on the dash the I turn on when I drop it in the water and start my engines.
Good luck!
I also recommend installing a 12 x 3 finned aluminum oil cooler on the return line to help dissipate heat from  the return oil. This will help the longevity of the pump.

The lift pump should shut off once the FSM is full as there is a fuel float I. There to turn it he lift on when its getting low and turn it off when it reaches a certain level. I suspect a float issue , which is very common. I just ( today , replaced the lift pump and float it mine.

Good morning, I have 2005 Verado 250s on the same year Conquest 305 @ 1350 hours.  I've put up with the squealing noise at the helm for too long and now hoping that the shunt I ordered (arriving today) will resolve it.  Unfortunately, I've not been able to find a post or online instructions detailing how the shunt is installed.  Will this be obvious?  If not, could someone please enlighten me with a few lines of instruction?  Many thanks in advance!  Chris

Verado Club,
I wanted to follow up with the final diagnosis.  I tried replacing the gas and still had the same issues.  Finally got it in to see a technician - the clamp that connects the air intake line to the supercharger had come loose - she wasn't getting enough air.  Tech said I was the third instance of this happening he had seen  this summer. 

Thanks to all who took the time to read my post.

Happy boating!

I don't think it will shift into forward unless the engines are running. Only reverse. I had this happen when checking my lower gearcase.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply.  I just tested one of my actuators using a different boat/engine and the actuator moves when shifting to and from forward and reverse.  The engine was not running.

So it seems there must be something going on between the helm shifting control and the actuator harness.  Any ideas?
