    Default New actuators install issues

    Hi there one of my actuators on the port side has frozen up I bought two new actuators that Moombah said is appropriate for my Mobius 2006. Unfortunately when I place him next to the old actuators they seem to be angled down to the ground more so than the old ones making the plate not angle right (see pics). Has anyone had issues with replacing their actuators? Do I need to soften the top part of the actuators to bend it up a bit to make the appropriate angle to make it fit?010268C2-7418-4C7C-82E8-2CCC536CF4F5.jpg53355179-0E4A-4725-98E3-F9CFA74CC9A9.jpg010268C2-7418-4C7C-82E8-2CCC536CF4F5.jpg53355179-0E4A-4725-98E3-F9CFA74CC9A9.jpg

    You could try unscrewing the actuator body, leave the original hinge part attached to your boat and screw on the new body and piston. Give Bennett a call. They have excellent customer service and will send you rebuild kits for no charge. Basically just O-rings.

    So are you saying only one end of the actuator has a pivot on it?

    Isnít the only difference the mounted (old) actuator is just extended a bit in your picture and the new one is fully retracted? At least that is how it looks.

    Default Actuators

    Yeah maybe ask for a rebuild kit I might do that because I asked if I could use the body of the ones that I received from them and they said itís not compatible with the old mounting bracket

    If you look Closely in the picture the new actuator is angled more towards the ground compared to the old one but yes the new actuator is fully retracted and the other actuator is all the way out. I retracted the old actuator that was still working but the new actuator still pushed the plate to far down.

    Default The parts guy got back to me

    He checked with Skierís choice and they ensure that that is the correct Ram for my 06 mobius. He stated over the 16 year the plastic could have flexed to the position that it is in now. I just wish there was a picture I can compare what the tabs should look like all the way up and all the way down. If anybody has pics of a new wake plate ram set up please shoot it my way. Thx

    To be honest, I am trying to wrap my head around how it's working without the actuator being able to pivot at both ends if the plate is on a continuous hinge with a single point of rotation. That plastic where it mounts to the boat must be flexing.

    OR. Is there a sliding mechanism or slot that is on the end where it mounts to the wake plate?
