Default (2) NEW Kobelt tilting helm pumps model # 7031/7035 $450 ea

I have (2) heavy duty KOBELT 7031 helm pumps that have the optional 7035 tilting mounting bezel. These are extreme commercial duty all bronze and stainless construction that put a Sea Star unit to shame. Rated at 2.0 cu/in per turn. Compatable with other hydraulic steering systems as well. These retail for nearly $1000 with both the helm unit and tilting bezel combined. I also have a Kobelt all bronze steering cylinder for an outboard application for sale for $350. These are never used components. The helm units are still in plastic, but the steering cylinder while never used is not in it's original packaging.

Units are heavy, but will ship anywhere in the contiguous US for actual cost up to $30 per unit, then anything over $30 I will cover.

Yes, your seastar system is most likely either a 1.7 cu/in per turn or a 2.0 cu/in per turn- it should be labeled somewhere on the helm unit. These will work with your system.

I bought my seastar helm a month before you posted this originally and I cant stop trying to kick myself in the but for not waiting... those helms look very sturdy...


BTW: The cylinder design looks very similar to my Hynautic K6 which is AWESOME because the cylinder itself is fixed to the engine bracket so the only moving part is the cylinder rod (no moving hoses, or cylinder body)... nothing like the Seastar POS...

Just my opinion....

Yes emudrynj, these things are very rugged!! I bought them from a boat builder for an anticipated project that never culminated. I have had them for a coupl eyears now and I know once I sell them that I will find a use for them and will regret selling them!! But, I have so much stuff that I have been just keeping for, " someday" that it's starting to look like Sanford and Son around here!! So- on they must go!! What I like about them is that there is no universal joint on these for the tilt feature- the whole unit tilts in it's mount!!

Too bad you didn't end up with them, but whomever does will get some great helm unit(s)- Thanks for the input!!

I would take one,but the helm moves as you adjust the steering wheel.With an autopilot hooked up,I don't know if that flexing would be good to the hose and also I don't think I have the extra room were the helm is mounted under for the movement of the helm.

Just wondering exactly what the point of your post was, Prockvoan?!

I'm in the market for a helm and was just pointing out what others might need to know.The helms you have forsale are at a good price and are very good helms.Good luck on the sale.
