hello there, i am new to the site and am hoping to track down some help.
i am in posession of an older autohelm
6000 unit with course computer, fluxgate
feedback, control head
and hydraulic pump. the problem with me using it is two-fold.
first, i have mechanical quadrant steering
. so my questions are as follows:
is the computer compatible with both mechanical and hydraulic drive units? can i just interchange them? what type of mechanical drive and where can i find such a unit second hand. does anyone out there have one that they could part with?
second, my boat is a young sun 35 double ender and i am worried that the linear drive
wouldn't have enough room next to the quadrant to do it's thing. anyone have any experience with this?
thanks for the help
