SEASTAR and BAYSTAR Hydraulic Steering Systems
The K-6 is a balanced cylinder with the ends retained by internal wire
ties. Cylinder end wire ties can be removed by using a spanner
wrench with two .125" diameter pins spaced 1.2" apart.
The .875" diameter rod has a .5" diameter hole for load attachment
at one end, and a .25" threaded cavity at the other end for connecting
an autopilot feedback cylinder. The cylinder body mounting area is
5.75" between parallel faces, with 1/4"–28 tapped holes spaced
1.31" apart on each face, and is designed for mounting on a bracket
we supply using four socket head screws.
Two ports run lengthwise through the cylinder, with each port having
a 1/4" NPTF thread. Each of the two lengthwise ports routes' fluid
to opposing sides of the piston. Port 1 routes fluid to Cylinder Side
1, and Port 2 to Cylinder Side 2.
The cylinder tube and cylinder ends are made of a 6OOO series
aluminum, coated for protection. The rod is polished stainless steel.
