I am in Salinas, PR...have good mail service....will be flying back to florida next week for a visit..
it's an old hynautic capitano single ram....no longer made,etc..

You don't mention who looked at your cylinder. Here is a rebuilder for Capilano steerings systems in Safety harbor, FL. They might be able to offer recommendations.


I also know a fellow here in Rhode Island who recycles boats. I have sent him an email asking if he has any hydraulic steering cylinders that, if not usable, are at least rebuild-able.
