Aren't we still in the neighborhood of 1.5:1 GBP to USD?
Yes but by the time items get into the stores here it always works out 1:1.

Sorry, that should have been the other way around. $1.50 US to 1 GBP. My mistake in typing.

So, one would think that the kit should have been in the area of 60 to 70 pounds, rather than over 100. Multiple sources here have it for a touch over $100 US.

Not trying to rub in the pricing; just find it odd.

hi jky
price includes postage
most US items marine auto and clothing are priced $1 becomes 1
best bet is a friend to send item as gift it wont attact any tax in UK
petrol (Gas) is 1.30/litre 1US gall = 3.78l = 4.92/US gall therefore part cost me the same as me having to buy 85 litres or 22 US gals (think calcs are ok)
how many gallons would it cost you
having once capsized rib when teleflex steering failed its cheap insurance

replaced seals and purged and bled system 3 times no air bubles BUT not working goes correctly to starboard 5 turns but keeps turning on port helm what should i look at (apart from credit card)
this was possibly the original fault that i assumed was due to low oil which was due to leaking seals
no other oil leaks in system
thanks

Assuming the motor will turn in both directions (which implies the pump is working correctly):

Something jammed in the check valve of the helm?

If you look at the back of the helm unit, there's a couple of biggish hex heads towards the bottom. Removing these reveals a couple of spring-actuated check valves that are the overpressure releases (i.e. if you crank the helm to the stop, then keep going, the check valve opens and allows fluid to leak through, preventing a blown seal or hose or whatever.) It's apparently possible for debris to jam the valve open, which essentially overrides the stop.

If that doesn't seem to be the problem, repost, and I'll see what else I can come up with.

Sorry, no idea how their power steering works. My experience is based on working on my (manual) helm pump.
