    Hydraulic steering cylinder question

    I recently had a hydraulic steering cylinder rebuilt for my Cig TG.

    Has anybody ever had one rebuilt?

    Approximate cost?

    What does a new one cost?

    Re: Hydraulic steering cylinder question

    I wouldn't think it would be a huge investment as there aren't a lot of parts to replace, assuming the cylinder barrel and the rod are usable. I've never done a steering cylinder but I've done plenty of hydraulic cylinders over the years, mostly on vintage aircraft.
    Was it bypassing internally or leaking to the outside?

    interesting question, my nephew needs to have a steering cylinder rebuilt on a Mercury outboard. Does anyone know who does this in So. Fla?

    I bent my steering ram a few weeks back.
    Marine Machine had it back to me in 2 days, and im in NY.
    Cost: $250. New piston and rebuild.
    I think just a rebuild is 100-150.
    With great power, comes great responsibility.
