Product Overview

SeaStar helms are designed for ultimate efficiency, safety and reliability, with easy installation and maintenance.

Replacement front mount hydraulic helms for your steering system. Each helm has a 4 7/16" footprint, 3/4" tapered shaft and nut. To verify which helm you have, simply look at the end of your steering shaft for a 1.7, 2.0 or 2.4 stamping. We recommend during installation that you thoroughly inspect hoses and connections for signs of excessive wear.

Key Features

  • Compact, stylish design
  • Convenient front-of-dash fill
  • Small 3"dia. hole cutout on dash
  • Can be retrofitted into old SeaStar 4 1/2"dia. dash cutout
  • Complete with elbow fittings
  • Choice of 1.7, 2.0 or displacements
  • Two-Year Limited Warranty


Retrofitting these helms into the older 4 1/2"dia. dash cutout requires the use of Back Plate Kit HA5418 (Model 464552). If desired, you can reduce the distance the helm protrudes from the front of the dash to 3 3/4" with the Round Bezel Kit HA5478 (Model 13481015). To adjust the helm's angle to 20° in relation to the mounting surface, use Wedge Kit HA5419 (Model 435190).

For general installation instructions, see the Front Mount Helm Installation Manual.

Caution: SeaStar helm pumps with manufacturer numbers that end in "-3" (like the ones we offer here) are fitted with positionable O-ring style hose fitting ports (commonly referred to as ORB). DO NOT attempt to install an NPT pipe fitting into "-3" helm hose fitting ports. Doing so will lead to irreparable damage to the helm. The manufacturer recommends use of SeaStar Solutions O-ring style hose fittings.
