Is it a new kit?? If so they normally come supplied as part of the kit. They are "usually" NPT if they are going into a seastar helm. The newer helms have different fittings to the old style. Hypro Marine would be my first port of call. In any case you need to know the thread sizes at the helm & pump ends.

It doesn't seem to come with any hoses. Only nmea connections and wiring.
