    The upper part attached to the transom is the upper hinge. I had 1 leaking and rebuilt both of mine after Bennett sent me the kits. Kit comes with the plastic clip which makes it much easier and safer. There's a pretty stout spring inside the actuator and a lot of ATF.

    Exactly. It has to either pivot or slide or it just won't work. The angle of the actuator has to be able to change as it moves. That's why the comment of it being fixed at the transom attach point confuses me. Maybe his bracket is just really tight on that end and he thinks it doesn't move. Take a picture of the top side on the actuator where it mounts to the boat. Bet there is a pin in it.

    No pin. It flexes.

    Wow. That's really not a very good design.

    I opened the pdf and see what you mean now. Still don't like that design. Constantly flexing plastic will eventually fail. Not to mention it probably allows the wake plate to hange angle slightly under loads.

    Hay H yep it definitely fixed on the mounted end and pivots on the plate end. So it probably does flex at the fixed end. I’m going to just throw them on and see what happens, what else can I do u know.

    I bet they work fine. I bet the earlier comment where you said the tech told you the old ones had probably deformed over time is correct. The new ones will probably eventually do that too.

    Okay I successfully put on the new actuators and it does flex at the mounting point of the back the boat as the plate goes up and down. The issue I have now is that the new actuator on the left still doesnÂ’t move.

    Yes on the flexing. That was my whole point earlier. Something has to move/pivot at that end too for it to work. I'm not crazy about flexing plastic, but hey that is the design. Have you checked for power being sent to that side?
