    Default Do I need a steering fluid filter?

    I have a 2000 Eliminator Daytona with a 509. Has dual hydraulic steering with a filter for the hydraulic fluid. The guys who works on my boat says its not really necessary. He has many years experience. They sell them at Teague. Why would you need one? What is there to filter in your hydraulic steering fluid?

    The boat will steer itself. No need to white knuckle/choke the poor girl.

    My Eliminator originally came with an add/on dual ram system, no fluid filter. When converting to a full hydraulic system from Imco, the kit came with an inline filter, to be installed between the pump and pressure side of the helm. Keeping everything clean and free of debris seems like a no brainer.

    Where does the debris come from?
