    Default ST4000 ram disassembly

    Can someone give me brief instructions on how to disassemble/re-assemble an ST4000 autopilot ram? I know some people open them to lube and even replace motors. For now I just want to check for moisture and learn the procedure.

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    Dito. I've got two rams that may need a birthday.

    I have not opened/serviced either of my ST4000+ rams yet but I plan to. The link below is for the Service Manual for the ST4000+ and ST4000+ GP Auto Pilots. It has exploded assembly/disassembly views of the rams and even the parts list needed to convert the ST4000+ (14,200 lb vessel) to the ST4000+ GP (20,000 lb vessel).

    If you venture into yours before I do mine let me know what you discover.

    No moisture inside and it looked remarkably good considering the the miles its got on it.
