Sailtec Backstay Adjuster Oil Drain and Fill Procedure This article taken from article dated 2 October 2008 A few of my boats have these adjusters and mostly they work great The owners of Sailtec are really nice helpful people I was told that once they stop holding pressure it is better just to chuck them out by one of my vendors and it probably is if you are paying for a rebuild however if you do the work yourself it will save quite a bit of money Below are some tips I got for the J105 pumps there is air in the system If there is air in the system it can be fixed by opening the valve all the way and with the valve open vigorously pumping the handle 20 30 times This agitation will cause any bubbles in the oil to rise to the top where they need to be They adjust it with more oil If the seals are leaking or you need to add oil Materials needed About 3feet each is about right OIL Must be correct kind of oil NOT automobile steering or brake fluid Look for something jacks It should be foaming and anticorrosion 2 quartside plastic cups 1 to pump old oil into 1 Open the valve and extend the piston all the way fully extended 2 Turn upside down piston pointing down 3 Close release valve 4 Put the unit in a bench vice or equivalentto hold it firmly upside down Sailtec Backstay Adjuster Oil Drain and Fill Procedure 5 Pump a 6 Back off the nuts on the compression fittings BOTH top and bottom and remove the it slightly be careful not to bend or buckle the tube 7 Take one clear plastic tube to the stainless steel elbow by the pump since the whole thing is upsidedown should be the top fittinge tube may be tight so puch or otherwise screw it on Lead this to an empty cupbucket old oil will come out here 8 Take the other tube and put it on the stainless steel elbow fitting that is now on the bottom the one by the piston rod Lead it to the bottom of a cup filled with fresh oil Fill the tube with oil before you get it fully scrbefore the next step In my case the oil came in a bottle with a conical shaped nipple and it was easiest to just put the hose on the top of the bottle and turn it upside down Whatever your method the goal is to fill with oil and no air bubbles Important step d oil will get the good oil If black oil comes out this is very bad news I guess it means that the internal seals are shot 10 After the piston rod is fully inside the unit put the stainless steel return pipetube back into position and tighten the compression nuts There is no need to try to fill the pipe with oil prior to reinstalling 11 Take the unit out of the vice and turn it rightside up normal position 12 Open the release valve 13 With your hands manually extend the piston rod to full extension 14 Close the release valve 15 Pump the unit all the way closed ang the unit vertically upright normal position over a pan to catch excess oil 17 Crack open the bottom return pipeline compression nut and leak off a little oil You may need to spring the return line slightly to open the seal at the bottom 18 Then pump the piston back down and let the overflow leak off 19 Close the bottom return pipeline compression nut As an aside if oil is leaking out of the pump at the bottom they can sell you a 10 new pump seal Easy to install but do need a hammer at some point to drive out a rollpin AdobeUCS4B938383I33dK88888888888CCHHCNH2C8SHNCNHCHCcBB88288782T8887281G11d8d865868488888888488HIKtKBN8288888972A9HA7A737O778 Yy17 3 D p y Aa17 2 D p tcc6wdeVVVVVVVV VJDVe0KU2jjjjjjMLY 4SND URD L LTH TRK cpspcpspcpspcpspcpspkernkernkernkernTkernlkernkernkernkernkernmarkmarkmarkmarkmarkmarkmarkmarkmarkBmarkVmarkjmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmkmk FRn 0DPbpx6FNVfnv6FNVfnv4TAHCCCGGJLDabcqrsz4Jl0Dh4ZDjBjf tTfzBTj2Hx6Jx0JxVpDPfx0FrDz6Pj4TlBv XtDz8xPdxV6JTht0JXftbBnNnTtLVjh4BZddLdllflHT2fDdlTt6x F T v 4ZlzJ06JJJJJJJJJt6JZ44D 00P4FFFhhhhFFFhhhhL5L7KLL023489wACDEFGHIJMOQRTUVWXY3579DGJKLNSV7L1wwwwL0345L789ACDEFGHIJKLLOQRSjTUWXYB5B7KBL57GJKLMSV239wDGJMVX3D57DDDGJKLV57GJKLV3579DGJKLMNPSVX7LMP3579DGJKLNSVX034578ACDEFGHIJKLOQRTUVWY3DGJV357DKLGJV15Ku4T444k4444444o444J44484444d44444F44444t4z4444I444444X44044aVlll9l9llslllllV9l9lllsUllllllllllllzltlll llWlllllllllllllxllllnllllSllflUllllllTlllklllllllolllJlll8llldllllllFllllltlzllllIlll4llXll0llULMMqMMMM9MUMMMUMMMMuMMVMMMMjMMnMMMMMMMMMMyMMjMMyMMMMMMMMMMMwMOM7MIM6M VnpfzpppRJp4pXpTxpDpppppHHzphppp Tpp4LppZpL4pvpdv0XpplplppJT 9p 9dDTppxpppprhdrpFpD0pbpzlzzzpppppFdopppppppppRppjppLpp2pppq vRqDf0DlD DlDlDllDl llITh0lLlqllll7lbXllX5F6sdYV308nv 08HPXhpxXdjdv0HZnTnx0L n HdfPPVPnPPPPPPQQQQTQjQQQQQRSSSSSSTTTTTTjTUUUVnVWWWjWXXXXYYYYY2YBYZFLMttzzBRXXz 4JC2btSctP9De8FSFOURj0nY0SmREHJGfMicrosoft TypographyhttpwwwmicrosoftcomTypography0HNBalU6QeIfsWs65hyhsLLerv1qwuV7ZC7wsFVtKv9LnP Dmv6wU

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
