    I was wondering how all you guys with hydro assist change your fluid? I submurged my rig in water and am changing ALL my fluids but I'm wondering how to pump all the fluid out of the ram and lines. I'm assuming I'll have to disconnect the hoses going to the ram and cycle the steering to pump out the old stuff... :confused: I've got a 2"x8" ram and 3/8" hoses so there's quite a bit of fluid stored in there. :doah:

    That's the only way to do it besides disconnecting the ram, and pumping it back and forth still won't get ALL the fluid out FWIW.
