I have an OMC but Volvo is similar as is Merc…
1) you must have a cotter pin extraction tool to get the cotter pins out; in the OMC and Volvos there are 4….2 big ones by the mounting bolts and one for cable and one for the steering arm. The 2 by the mounting bolts are big and tough to get out; the other 2 are small but tough to access. I think Merc used locking tabs instead of the cotter pins on the mounting bolts.
Once you get this thing out you will need a good hot shower to soothe your poor twisted body lol!
Install is much easier you have to allow time to bleed out all the air. My original lasted 33 years!
Make sure to grease the steering cable, I also greased the cotter pins and all pivot points.

PS
for anyone who has an older OMC or Merc boat (like prior to 1990) that uses this Saginaw design actuator with the seperate control valve and hydraulic cylinder, both are rebuildable because this same system was used on GM and Ford cars back in the 60s and 70s, so because there is so much interest in classic Corvettes and Mustangs, the parts are out there. As long as the hydraulic cyl rod is not damaged and its not rusted out, it can be rebuild as can the control valve. It appears to be a fiddly job, based on videos I've seen but do-able.
