I measured the distance on my old but rebuilt linear drive
. It measures 18 inches. I have a back up octo hydraulic drive that was free. In open area it would be fine. But its throw is 12 inches. I can find drives that have throws of 9 and 12 inches but nothing that matches the old autohelm linear drive
. Suggestions are sought for a good value drive with the proper throw. Guess i could replace the rudder
post mount but seems counter intuitive given it has better leverage then a smaller attachment would have.
Hoping i made sense on my question.
