ADDITIONAL SEASTAR STEERING STATION OR AUTOPILOT KIT

1) Refer to illustration Figure E.
2) Determine the location of the second station or autopilot
power pack.
3) Measure along the path of the tube routing from the upper helm
pump to the second station or autopilot power pack. Multiply
this length by three for the amount of tubing required.
4) Select the tubing kit based on the total system tubing
requirement.

*For NPT helms use HF5502.

NOTES:
a) A compensating line is required between helm stations or the helm and autopilot power pack.
b) All hoses should be routed with a gradual rise (particularly the compensating line) so that air will not be trapped in the lower helm station.
c) The second helm station or autopilot power pack may be connected at any location between the upper helm station and the cylinder. For existing single station installations the nylon or copper tubing may be cut and the tee fittings installed at any convenient location.

CAUTION: DO NOT cut SeaStar Steering Hose.

REQUIRED DETAILS FOR THE ADDITION OF AN AUTOPILOT.

1) SeaStar Helm pumps are fitted with a built in check valve which are required for installations of additional steering stations and/or autopilot pumps. If your helm pump is not fitted with an internal check valve an external valve will be required.
2) Autopilot mfg. requires the volume of your steering cylinder(s) to provide an adequate autopilot pump, refer to page 12-2 for cylinder specifications.
