1994 Outrage 21 Steering Leak

Postby nwwhalerguy » Tue Sep 10, 2019 12:04 pm

I bought a well-preserved 1994 Outrage 21 with what I believe to be a Teleflex steering system, the kind with the adjustable tilt helm. The hydraulic system at the helm has started to leak and I am researching replacement gaskets or O-rings for that part of the system. There are no identifying serial or model number on the helm, just a Teleflex label.

Give me input regarding the model of system that was shipped with that model year OUTRAGE.

Guide me to a parts distributor.

The advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Here is some advice:

A leak at the input shaft at the helm is a very common problem and is easily remedied.

My 1996 Seastar Pro tilt helm is model HH5774 2.0 cu.in. You did not say where yours is leaking. Rebuild kits for the helm [being sold on] Amazon are around $40.
If just the shaft seal is leaking I have both dash-210 & dash-214 (3/4 & 1in quad rings) I can mail to you. Let me know.
I also have 2 Yamaha covers for 1990s V6 outboards, great to keep off the sun and weather from your engine hood.

Thank you both for the help here. I researched the helm at the time of original sale from Boston Whaler technical support and it is a Seastar/Teleflex type HH-6541-3. The replacement seal kit is number 6032 available from Seastar Solutions. Chuck I will take you up on your offer of the quad O ring for the 3/4" diameter shaft seal, as it appears to be the only seal on the helm pump according to the Seastar diagram of the pump. Cheers!
