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.
