I am not expert but if you have water in the oil and the fuse is blowing it sounds like the water has damaged the hyd pump, or made the oil so thick is may have burnt the motor out?

Hi all, I have an issue with my Sterndrive 290DP. The hydraulic fluid has turned to a yogurt like substance so I assume I have water ingress. I am also blowing the 55amp fuse, which is expensive so I am replacing that for a breaker that can be reset. Before I start stripping the sterndrive has anyone had experience of this and how to go about finding the fault. Any help would be appreciated,
many thanks,
Roger

PS I thought I had put this issue on a few weeks ago, if I have doubled up and have missed the first appeal I apologise
