Engine Hatch Actuator Source??
ggibson2007 Member Posts: 8 ✭
Does anyone have a source for a hatch actuator? The linear actuator Linak supplied Hurricane for my 2200 SD has failed after five years. I became intermittent after 3 years of service. Linak refuses to sell to anyone but a manufacturer. Hurricane refuses to sell to anyone but a franchised dealer. Dealers tell me it takes a minimum of 6 weeks to get parts, and the actuator Hurricane currently supplies is a poor solution as it does not allow for a mechanical override, that is, you cannot "power" it out by pulling on the hatch cover. I'm worried that the next failure will leave my I/O engine compartment sealed up unless I cut out the cover.

Lenco is a brand name of electric hatch lifts that are most popular with the on-line stores. You may want to check them out and compare their reliability with Linak.
Also, you might also take a look at a hydraulic lift system to replace the electric actuator type you have now. Bennett makes this kind of system and seems to be available in the retail market and boat dealers .
