Default Bleeding power steering

Last fall I removed the motor and gimbal assy from my boat. I have put everything back together. I lost some power steering fluid in the process. I filled the resevoir and it seemed sucked quite a bit of that down which I immediately re-filled again. The problem is I still don't have any steering. It seems like it has air somewhere in the system. It is not external steering. It is the stock system, I believe it is Hynautic. I think that the cylinder itself needs to be bleed. Can anyone help?

Hynautic I think has a web site they should be able to fax you the bleedings process.

call the 1-800 http://www.marinecontrolsys.com/

You should not need to bleed this system. You can crank the wheel back and forth and feel a jerky motion. Keep going back and forth until the jerking stops. This should do it. Check the level afterwords.

Mine does nothing. Turn the wheel either way and the ram just sits there. So I am thinking that the ram needs bleeding. There is a large bolt on top that serves no apperant purpose, so I am assuming that it is a bleeder of some sort. I left a message with marine control, hopefully they can fax a "procedure".
