Helm Replacement

Looking to replace the hydraulics helm in my 1981 MT 34. Current one is a leaky Syten H-10 system. I believe I have found a SeaStar replacement combo but don't know if this is a good fit. Any advice welcome

Sounds like a big job. Are you sure you can install some new seals in the present system. I think they are mostly "O" rings.

I rebuilt mine this winter, it is pretty easy with the factory kits. Not sure what the Syten H-10 system is though, I have a Wagner helm pumps. For my helms the factory rebuilt kits include a gasket and all the o-rings for $50, so $100 for both helms, beats thousands to replace with new units. If you don't want to pull and rebuild them there are places that will do it for you.
I would research rebuilding before you replace.
