 does anyone know where i can get a rebuild kit for the seastar hydraulic steering ram on my boat? i also need to order two 16' hoses. and the tilt helm also has a little play in it. is that normal? what i mean by play is the steering wheel wiggle (up and down).

 You can find a rebuild kit at boats.net. Much cheaper than going through a dealer. The kit will come with a wrench for taking the cylinder ends off. Mine were so frozen that I had to use a punch and hammer to get them loose. After that the job was very easy. Try the wrench first and then if that doesn't work use the punch in the holes and give it a sharp whack. Hopefully it will come loose. There are four holes and you get replacement caps, so no worrys if you mess the cap up. Just don't get into the cylinder, or you'll have to replace the whole thing. The steering wheel helm is probably just loose. Look under the console and see if the mounting bolts are loose.

 Hillbilly, after your uncalled for response you must be a dealer. That is one with a bad attitude. I was just trying to point out that kit can be bought over the net at approximately a 50% savings under dealer price. It is the same exact kit you buy from the dealer (directly from SeaStar) and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to install it. If you have basic mechanical skills you can do it. Boats.net has most great prices and they ship very quickly. With $3 gasoline and $18 a gallon oil why shouldn't one save as much as possible. By the way I am in no way affiliated with boats.net. I was just sick of being screwed by my local dealer.

   Jim, one more thing from Mags (70.113.193.211)  11/23/2007 11:41:00 AM
 Go to the SeaStar page and make sure you get the rebuild kit for the cylinder you have. I believe the cylinder number is on the front of the cylinder. SeaStar has several cylinder designs. Once you have the kit number just Google it and several retailers who have it should come up, so you can compare prices.
