how do I know if I need a I or a II seastar helm? What is the difference?
It will depend on what type of outboards you are pushing. The difference between them is the amount of hydro fluid that is pumped out per revolution. The seastar 1 will need more revolutions of the wheel to turn the same outboard as a seastar 2. Basically a mechanical advantage / disadvantage. Look at seastar's website and technical specs. They will tell you "if you are trying to turn X you need Y"
just what I needed
replaced old Teleflex helm with new Seastar,old mounting hole to large so this worked great,also the new swivel fittings make it much easier to mount with rigid lines
