Handy info for anyone needing to flush and refill their hydraulic steering fluid. Especially if you have a multi-helm config that takes a lot of fluid:
Sea Star brand fluid on amazon runs around $25 per quart. Needing 2-3 quarts for my system and knowing that these guys are not refining their own product I did some homework to find that same product (AeroShell Mil-PRF-5606H) from an aerospace lubricant supplier.
The smallest container they sell is 1 gallon but it was only $42 including shipping. The one issue I had is that it comes in a sealed can that you open with a church key so there is no way to store the extra in the original container. I used an empty gallon 2 stroke oil bottle to save the excess.http://petroleumservicecompany.com/aero ... allon-can/
