Need urgent help!!! - Hydrolic steer system identification

My steering system is starting to leak in the seals. Want to replace the gaskets. Thought I'd find some kind of brand marking on it, but nothing. I assume it's early -90's. Can anyone help identifying my steering system so I can buy the right replacements? Pics attached. Thanks!

Take it to your nearest hydraulic hose company for plant hire etc. They should be able to help you out.

The leak is at the stainless steele rod. I assume it's some kind of custom gasket there.

I think best would be to replace the org part. If anyone know please let me know, would hate to throw it away because of this.

LOL - doubt it very much. Get it to somewhere to strip it and inspect it. I doubt it will be a custom washer.

You could always replicate that gasket with similar material?

It won't be a gasket, it'll be a seal.

Take it to your local hydraulics place, but I wouldn't expect them to be able to do much-there doesn't appear to be any way to remove the seals from the pics and reinstalling new ones on a system that old is going to show up all sorts of problems.


The Baystar/Seastar systems have removable end caps with seals in.

If I get that far to fix it, I'll post pics about it here. All knowladge is good.
