Commander Side Mount Hydraulic Outboard Steering Kit - For Single  Outboards up to 135HP* COMKIT-SPORT

You can easily upgrade your boat's steering! Get rid of your boat's old push pull, cable steering and install this smooth hydraulic steering kit.

Hydrive Side or tube-mount type cylinders are very popular because of the ease of fitting and the economical price.

 ​This kit offers a very simple upgrade from cable steering to hydraulic steering for vastly improved results.

Easy to install: 

  • The side mount cylinder simply screws into the thread on your outboard's tilt tube - see our Tips and Advice Tab for more explanation and an example picture.
  • For outboards up to 90HP (either 2 stroke or 4 stroke) these side mount kits are both economical, and very simple to fit. (They willl also fit 2 stroke outboards 100-135HP).
     
  • Before you change the steering system in your boat to a Side mount cylinder you need to check that there is enough clearance for the cylinder to fit - see the dimensional diagram below and dimensional PDF diagram attached.

The main differences between different hydraulic steering kits are the quality of the materials used in the cylinder and helm pump. 
Hydrive is a very reputable, long established Austraian brand that is exported  world wide.

Driving a boat with hydraulic steering is much smoother than steering boats with the push pull cable steering systems.

Tips and Installation Advice:

Hydrive Side or Tube-mount type cylinders are very popular because of the ease of fitting and the economical price.
It offers a very simple upgrade from cable steering to hydraulic steering for vastly improved results.
Selection of this type of steering is entirely dependent on the HP of the outboard - it will suit all outboards up to (and including) 90HP as the type of mount is universal to all brands and HP of motors that are fitted with tilt-tubes.
Some very small outboards do not have tilt-tubes and therefore must use the same pivoting bracket that is attached to the customer’s current cable.
Fitting is very simple as the hydraulic cylinder screws directly onto the threaded tilt-tube in the same location as the existing cable steering.
It connects to the tiller arm of the outboard using the standard drag-link already connecting the cable

For smaller outboards (up to 90HP)  these side mount kits are economical and very simple to fit.

NOTE: Below is an example of how a Hydrive side mount cylinder attaches to most outboards - however it is not the exact cylinder that is supplied with this kit.
