power purge for steering.

Hi Everybody seasons greetings etc!!

I need to get hold of a power purge system to bleed air from my seastar hydraulic system, the suppliers at Barnet Marine have explained the system but I cannot find it??

If anyone can help I would appreciate it!

regards
mike

I wonder if it's similar to the systems they use for bleeding car brakes and clutches??? If so you can get ones from Halfords that use a bit of air pressure - usually from a spare wheel.

No it isn't, steering systems are totally different from brake and clutch systems, the only similarity is that they are both hydraulic NEVER use a system like that on your steering!!!!! - it's available from Hypro marine - we have one but we're a little way away from you I'm afraid!

It is built specifically for Seastar systems with hoses going to the helm and ram, and will fill the system in no time flat. You can get the air out without the power system - just follow the instructions in the manual.
