    Any one having issues with your steering when I turn the wheel I can hear the hydraulic pump and it gets a little stiff

    If you have the verado outboard, you will always hear hydraulic sounds from the helm. Nature of the beast. If they are excessive, the system might need bled.

    The pump and reservoir can be accessed through the trap door on the starboard side of the rear trunk space (where IO engine would be). Should be small door with 4 screws on starboard side wall. Check the fluid. Only use Mercury 0w30 synthetic power steering fluid.
