Customer Question

I have a BA150x7 cylinder. It binds badly on the plastic pistons. Do they make replacements. The lip seals seem to be fine. Appreciate your help.

Hello. My name is Tan.

The binding is caused by corrosion getting into the end caps.

Installing a new seal kit will remedy your issue.

Here are the kits. I listed for both depending on which cylinder you have.

Do you have the brass or aluminum tube?

There are 2 kits one for the brass tube HS5182 and one for the aluminum tube HS5156.

Kit Brass tube HS5182. http://www.marinepartssource.com/newdetails.asp?mfgno=HS5182&pnumber=TFHS5182&mfg=TELEFLEX&desc=Seal%20Kit

Here is aluminum tube HS5156. http://www.marinepartssource.com/newdetails.asp?mfgno=HS5156&pnumber=TFHS5156&mfg=TELEFLEX&desc=SEAL%20KIT%20150EM%20MV%20BJ%20ATM
