Save Thousands of Dollars on Repairs to Volvo Stern Drives!!!
Barnacles and oysters have been able to grow on the Trim/Tilt Rams of stern drives. The trim/tilt rams have oil seals that are sensitive to sharp objects. There are several problems associated with marine growth on the trim/tilt rams.Barnacles and oysters are sharp. When they grow on the steering ram pistons, they can cut the oil seals during normal operation.
Barnacles and oysters are sharp. When they grow on the trim/tilt ram pistons, they can cut the oil seals during normal operation.
If the oils seals have been damaged by marine growth, water will enter the trim/tilt rams, resulting in internal damage to the mechanical components. There is a considerable cost to repair or replace the damaged components, and this could be as much as $2000.00.
Apart from damage to the trim/tilt rams and pumps, loss of trim and tilt control can result.
The Barnacle Busters Protector ‘Stops’ barnacles and oysters growing on the trim/tilt rams.
This will save you the inconvenience, not to mention the cost of repairs to your trim/tilt ram components due to loss of oil and water ingress.
By using a Barnacles Busters Protector, the trim/tilt rams will remain protected between haul outs and servicing.
We do recommend that a new Barnacle Busters Bellows Protector is replaced during routine servicing.
