I have a seastar front mount installed with 225 hp outboard dating from 2001. I don't see a model number. Can you determine what seal kit I need without knowing my model?
Without a number it's difficult. There's a good chance it's a TEL-HC5345-3 cylinder. Take a look at that one on our website to confirm. If so it's the TEL-HS5157 seal kit.

need cylinder seals for BA 125 x 7 BJ, are seals for HC5312 the same or is the cylinder unrepairable?
I own a cylinder repair business. If you can send me a bigger picture of what the customer needs repaired, I could better tell you if it is repairable.
Don't know,don't remember which one I have
The cylinder is repairable providing the "barrel" is not damaged. If it has been bent then replace the complete cylinder.The best advise for rebuild is search utube for how to rebuild cylinder. It has been to long ago that I rebuilt our cylinder to remember all the steps. The repair has performed perfect and much cheaper to rebuild than replace. Pay attention to details and you should be ok.Purging out the air is a trip in itself.Good luck.Mickey
I do not know about the BA125 7. My cylinders are BA135 7 ATM, and they use seal kit HS5155.
Your is different cyl bore than the one i have so youll need kit # HP6026. It is easily repairable.
I Have a teleflex steering 2 helm system with a "cylinder leak" on a 1977 Searay 300 sun-bridge. I would like to purchase a seal kit. Cylinder diameter is 1.75" shaft is .5" both are stainless steel with Brass ends. The seal within the brass ends is the issue and they are retained with press-fit inserts. Can you help?
Thanks for this Mike - will have to pick up a seal kit for it and will chat with people on ordering as well. Thanks for taking the time here!
if I remember right,there are instructions either on the teleflex websight,or included with seal kit.the brass ends are not pressed on,you need to unscrew the hose connection fittings from the cylinder and the ends will come off,(but I don't remember if they unscrew or just push on)
Cool thanks for this Peter!
I changed the seals on my teleflex piston but piston contiued to leak due to wear I replaced the piston with a new one. If you take out the hydraulic fitting and look inside you will see a retaininng clip
how difficult is it to replace the seals on an hc5313 ? thanks mike w
Actually a simple change, there is a video on YuTube that describes the procedure from start to finish. Go to yutube and seach for "seastar steering". read the instructions, watch the video and it all comes together. Not difficult at all. My problem became more complex as one of the steel lock rings, under the fitting, was corroded inside the aluminum tube and could not be removed. The cylinder is a 1986 vintage and previous owners had used pure ATF in place of seastar fluid, so I paid the final price. I ended up replacing the entire cylider.Bottom line: Dont use ATF beyond emergency operation.Good luck, hope this helps.
Not easy. The T's must be removed to gain access to the metal keeper that holds the end bladders in place. If (as was my case) the salt water has corroded the keeper the end bladder will not turn and the keeper cannot be removed. Extra force only destroys the case of the cylinder and there are few tools to hold the cylinder without damage. I bought another cylinder and this time I put a cheap plastic box over the ball assembly which gets corroded by salt water dripping on it and keeps the cylinder from swiveling durning a turn and this causes the cylinder shaft to bind causing the leak. There are marine mechanics that specialize in the repair of the cylinder and I noticed the new cylinder from Teleflex has a different material for the end bladders so they may not be as difficult to deal with as the aluminum ones of old.

Overhauling Marine steering cylinder
This was my first experience with overhauling a hydraulic cylinder. The job was over 3 hours with all seals replaced and the cylinder re-installed on the boat. The instructions provided were good but additional info on re-assembly would have been helpful. All in all, a good experience.
