Fix It Right!!!!!

Trimman u need to get this to solve that problem once and 4 all. I procrastinated 4 four years but finally spent the $$ 4 it.

Single Bravo, Dual Ram Add-On Hydraulic Steering System

This kit includes:

* (2) Steering Cylinders
* (1) Bravo End Cap
* (2) Bolt Kits
* (1) Bravo End Cap O-ring
* (2) -6 AN X 1/4" 90 Degree Brass Fittings
* (4) -6 AN X 1/4" 90 Degree Stainless Fittings
* (2) -6AN X 1/4" Stainless Tee Fittings
* (4) Braided Stainless Inside Hydraulic Hoses
* (4) Braided Stainless Outside Hydraulic Hoses
* (4) Thru-hull fittings
* (1) Installation Instruction Manual

NOTE: Brazillian steering manifold or Saginaw shuttle valves must be ordered separately.

Installation Instructions for boats using the Brazillian steering manifold or theSaginaw shuttle valve can be found by clicking on their respective links.

The high performance Mayfair by Hardin Marine Hydraulic Steering System is recommended for most sport boat applications. This arrangement gives additional support for even tighter, more firm steering control. Generally speaking, it is recommended to use external power steering on boats which run in excess of 70 MPH, however there are some boats that run 60 MPH that would benefit from the use of external power steering. The new Mayfair by Hardin Marine steering systems use a 316 stainless steel rear cap that is highly polished and is supplied with all stainless fittings, thru-hulls, bolts, and pre-made hydraulic braided stainless lines.

137-9252
Single Bravo, Dual Ram Add-On Hydraulic Steering System

$2,175.99

The River shiver run is sun oct 2 , this is our clubs biggest run, last year we had 56 boats, because of the amount of boats and the parking situation we are leaving and ending at Joey Ts bar/ restaurant on the fox river in mchenry, we go rain sleet snow or sunshine , hopefully its sunshine again!! Meet at 9:30 leave at 11 sharp hope to see lots of new and old faces there,we have over 15 supporters for the run, there should be lots of prizes and gifts for all :cool:
