Question

Dose this unit meet the specs for a 200 hp outboard engine?

Asked on 02/23/2014 by Ron Peschon

Top Answer

I did not check the specs since this was an exact replacement for the failed helm pump. My boat came with a 200 HP engine.

Yes

Answer

This unit will work fine for a 200hp engine. I installed mine to handle a yamaha 250 and it is working just fine. You can go on u tube and see the instruction. It helps a little. Proper bleeding is the key. follow those steps precisely. Definitely get the bleed kit, (hose and pin)

Question

I need the main shaft seal only any idea where I can get that one only and not a complete kit ?

Asked on 08/09/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

It is my experience with several boats that these pumps have a 8-9 year life expectancy. That said I would change the whole pump at a 350 dollar cost and know you are set for the next 8 to 9 years. The change out is very easy.

Answer

The seal can be replaced by careful separation of the pump cover, which serves as a resovoir, from the pump unit which slides into the cover with an o-ring seal.....after the pump case is free from the pump shaft and pump itself..the oil seal is easily removed from the cover and is available from any bearing or seal supplier, just take it in and they will measure and order for very small money.....

Answer

Go to any good hydraulic cylinder or pump rebuilder and that is where I have bought just the seals. They usually have a complete selection of sizes and are very inexpensive. Take the old one with you so they can mic it .

Can the old unit be rebuilt?

Asked on 02/07/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes, there is a company in Flordia that rebuilds them that I spoke to before I purchased my new one. New is always best, paid a little more but I am happier this way!!

Answer

Yes, the unit can be separated from the pump. The housing in a plastic material which fits very tightly over the pump housing. The pump may be pressed from the plastic which forms the holding tank for the oil. The seals are all of the o-ring type which may be found at a hydraulic supplier . Putting the pump back together just requires pushing the tank back onto the pump. I rebuilt both of mine and gave to a boater less fortunate than I . I decided that I better go with new ones. The boating in Maine is often remote and foggy , no time to loose steering with ledges on all sides. I will be pleased to answer any additional questions.

Yes they can. The housing is a Bakelite like plastic material which may

I know they sell a new o ring kit for this model but I personally would replace the unit because I never have any faith in rebuilt anything without a professional doing the whole job

Question

I keep getting oil leaking out of the helm pump filler/vent cap. Have replaced the O ring on the vent filler cap. Any idea what's causing this?

Asked on 06/14/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Over fill? When is it leaking? Is it when you turn the wheel? I haven't seen this and to be honest I'd be making a guess at it. Have you tried Seastar product support. I've talked to them in the past and they were very helpful. Best of luck

Question

how many quarts hydralick fluid will i need?

Asked on 05/23/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The amount of fluid you need probably depends on the specific boat. I needed less than one quart to fill and bleed the system when I replaced the helm pump.

Answered on 05/23/2014 by JAMES CHAFFMAN

Answer

2 should do. Use a clean jar when bleeding the system and you can reuse that fluid if needed. Have fun.

Answered on 05/23/2014 by JAMES WEAVER

Answer

Depends if you are only filling the helm pump. If do then one quart should do it with a bit leftover but, if you are filling the entire system it depends how far the steering system is.

we have a 1978 Bertrum and we have a 1120 helm pump and need a new one or a kit to rebuild, any help?

Asked on 12/31/2011 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

James C. I just occasionally comment when I find a good post - love to have a beer shoot the stuff but for the next 4-5 months I am 14/day installing electronic/hydraulics 6 days a week. Have to have 1 day for family. Any how, it is best to have a helper, but I guess a bar clamp would work for a quick rough in, (but NOT when installing an autopilot where you must get ever bit if air out of the system, turning the full range slowly.) Manufacturers of hydraulics systems recommend of a slow counter clockwise rotation to port, and then clockwise to starboard topping off and you go... ( For autopilots, you have to attach the pump leak free inline and open the pump's bleeder port and adjusting its directional aspect each time you go port and again starboard). You should bleed the cylinders as well. If you are out with your friends as you indicated, you can do it this way. You don't even have to bleed the rear hydraulics since your not using an auto pilot. I have done a lot of quick and "dirty" installs for guys with good GPS and got them 90% + steering out of the helm. When I attach temporary transparent the the bubbles hose, 95% steering is normal. Offshore Guys with 300-600 hp carry an extra helm as THEY OFTEN BLOW and SPIN LIKE A BICYCLE WHEEL. Unlike most things, quality is up here, ( if you how mechanics, and price is down. Nice helm for the price! Gotta go. Tight Lines, et.al. CaptRichie1

Answer

I recently purchased a Teleflex Seastar Helm Pump model HH5271 for my 1995 Excell cuddy cabin. The most difficult task in changing the pump was removing the old pump after 16 years. The installation of the new pump was very easy and only took about 10 minutes. The instructions for bleeding the new pump and system were easy to follow and took less than 20 minutes. A second person is required to hold the steering rod in the full left or right positions while you turn the steering wheel and make sure the fluid level is maintained. Actually I used a bar clamp to hold the steering rod for these steps. Any one with minimal mechanical should be able to perform this task. Good luck.

will a 5271-3 replace a 5272-3 sea star helm pump

Asked on 06/08/2018 by JAMES from Florida

Top Answer

It will fit, but more importantly, do you still need the added cubic inches of the 5272-3. Please call one of our techs at (800) 497-0010 if you want to discuss the options to best fit your needs.
