not to be a dick, but have you tried a basic internet search?
I just googled "seastar tilt mechanism" and bingo, there's your answer. No seastar guru needed.

I did the search and found a kit but was a little unsure of specific model compatibility so I thought I would ask on here. Part# HA6523 is what I found. It would be nice to maybe hear from someone that may have done it with this kit to know if it’s really plug and play or insider tips or tricks to make it work come into play. Info like that is the real value to posting a question here.

I did it with that kit about two weeks ago. Direct swap. Only difference might be your base plate which a new version is provided in the kit. The plastics will likely look different as they updated them some years back.
Here’s a thread where BoatSteer confirms that 6523 is the correct kit.
