Shaft seal on helm pump for a 11 meter international

Post by reelfishin »

Looks like we have a seal bad on our helm pump. It is the shaft seal near the pilot wheel. Is the seal still available? I hope to pull the pump soon and see how much trouble it is to change. Has anyone done it and have some good advice? Thanks

If its a Hynautic ( I believe it is ) Seal kits are available . I believe Beacon has them . Not that hard to do ,but there are a lot of parts that have to go in right .

The 11 meters used the Hynautic system, (conformed)

When I did my 2005 mechanical refit, a decision was made to upgrade from the factory system to the simple 2 line Teleflex SEASTAR system which does not require air pressure to operate.

Thanks for the quick information. I pulled it today and we have sent it to a rebuild shop. We were given a reasonable price but I will wait and see if that changes. If that does not work out then I will either do it myself with a kit or replace the system if parts are not available.
