'93 prostar 190, looking to find gas shocks to hold up the engine box.
The ones I have are the wrong strength, won't allow engine box to come down.
Also need one for the observers seat back. It's too weak to hold it up anymore.

Anyone know what size (lbs.) I should look for? Would NAPA have these? Any other source?

Thanks.

GSNI 5300 - 30 (there are three options for exterior finish)

Gas shock, series 5300, 30 lbs.

I have this identical shock suppressor on my engine cover (93 PS190) and it works just fine to manage the engine cover movement.

I use these for my engine box... http://www.amazon.com/StrongArm-4247-Universal-Extended-Support/dp/B000GBIPZA

here's the link to the observer seat bulkhead http://www.lavanture.com/pdfs/GasSpringCatalogMar2010.pdf

just measure what you have and look at the ends - they are readily available...

I ordered some spd shocks a couple of weeks ago, (2) for engine and (2) for observer's seat $63.00 delivered. They were for a 97 205. Easy company to deal with. The last 6 numbers represent length and pound....the first series of letters will be different.

I cross referenced the passenger seat with schucks and found it was the same thing. I think it was 20 or 25 lb. It cost between 25-30. That was for the seat back that accessed under the passenger side of the dash. It may help to cross reference with Napa or Teleflex Marine.
