Hydraulic steering helm refurb

I noticed today that my steering helm is weeping fluid from the shaft seal, the unit is an Indemar one, never heard of it.


Does anyone know where I can buy seals etc?

TIA

You could get it matched in a good bearing suppliers. Take the wheel off and hook it out. You may have bent the shaft if you've been hanging on it heavily

My advice is to remove the seal and take it to a local hydraulics place.

For Seastar helms, the OEM replacement seal is about $6 US (not too terrible); the part from a hydraulics place is about 39 cents.
