Spare Autopilot

Would a Simrad Wheelpilot work on a 37ft 23,000lb boat that has hydraulic steering?
The setup now is a Wagner B2 pump and 2 haudralic rams on rudder, with an autohelm 6000 pump tapped into the haudraulic lines.

The wheelpilots are rated for a much smaller boat, however compared to my last Pearson 35 that had cable steering. The weather helm on the haudralics is almost nill. Also what about the small amount of ram fluid bleedby.
