Hunter 460 autopilot

I have a previous thread but I think I should have been more specific with my question. I have purchased a Hunter 460 that does not and never has had autopilot. I am looking to install one myself. My understanding is that Hunters set up the boats for autopilot from the factory. early 90's in the 42ish size boats were set up for rotary systems. I am NOT going for a wheel pilot but instead want either a rotary (if it is designed for one) or a linear drive system. Are there any Hunter owners out there with a like kind boat that would share some information and pictures of their set up with me?

Thanks

Re: Hunter 460 autopilot

I have the rotary drive on my Hunter and the drive motor is mounted in the pedestal. It is pretty straight forward really, but you could ask more here

I am not sure if the 46 foot boats have the same arrangement as yours does but thanks....
