Hi Harold, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.Which engine do you have on the boat?
Expert:  Jason replied 1 year ago.
Hi Harold, it looks like you read my reply and logged off. If you can get me the engine information off your boat I can look up all the part numbers you need to convert it to hydraulic steering.
If you tried to send a reply back, unfortunately I did not receive one.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no I do not have power steering. What about the cylinder length ?

Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.
How much space do you have? I don't have a boat of that model I can look at so I have no idea the space you have.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I believe I have the space. I was hoping the Teleflex may have designed a system for this boat ?? How can I contact co. to determine if a system has been designed

Expert:  Tan replied 1 year ago.
Here is the link to Seastar which is Teleflex. http://www.seastarsolutions.com/support-2/technical-support/I have used the system I posted earlier. This system is rated for 600 hp. So it is plenty strong enough.Post back with questions.
