Replaces original cable steering system

Bleeding the system was a bit messy but all's well that ends well!
January 24, 2014
I bought an HC5312-3 hydraulic cylinder to replace my original, 2005 vintage, cylinder which had started to leak and I couldn't repair. The kit is complete with a helm fluid fill kit and bleeder hose. The materials and instructions are excellent. It takes two people to bleed the system but it is not hard to do. The original cylinder failed due to rust preventing the "rod ball end" from moving which caused the piston seal to wear and leak. The new cylinder appears to have several design improvements and works well. The instructions don't mention it but I greased the moving parts of the "rod ball end" to try to prevent future corrosion.
