Thanks. So if PS reservoir is low likely culprit is steering cylinder? And if trim fluid is low it's in the tilt/trim mechanism? Since it's leaking from bellow the lower green bearing does that rule out trim cylinder(s)? I'll be at boat tomorrow to check fluids. Anything else I should look for?

The steering rams leak into the pedestal so it is probably a PS fluid leak which is common.  Check the levels in the PS reservoir and the trim fluid reservoir to troubleshoot.

2006 275.
Fluid is leaking from bottom of steering tube around the lower green bearing. The marina (rack + stack) notified me of leak while in storage so I have no running symptoms to describe. I used the boat a month ago and steering and trim/tilt were normal. What are the possible causes of this leak?

Thank you so much. I knew I couldn't have been the first person with this question so I will search again. Thanks again!

From another thread on motors that have not been operated in years.  BTW put "sitting" in the search function and some threads that will interest you will pop up.


Do a 300 hour service on the motor.

Drain as much fuel out of the motor as possible.  Including the FSM.
I would clean as much of the fuel system as possible.  Fuel lines, FSM, replace the red castle fuel filter and the high pressure filter.  Take the fuel rail off and clean the injectors as best you can.  Buy an FSM repair kit and perform the repair.

Inspect the plugs.  Add some oil to the cylinders.
Change the gear oil.  Take the LU off and change the water pump impeller and housing.  Shift the lower with a pair of pliars and turn the vertical shaft to see if the prop shaft turns.

Change the thermostat.

I am sure there is other stuff but if you can get the fuel system clean before trying to start it I think you would stand the best chance of an operational motor.

Once you get the motor running change the gear oil in about 10-20 hours to make sure there is no water in the gear oil.

Sounds like a great buy.
