    Default Calgo with Hydraulic Diverter

    Is any one running a calgo steering with a Hydraulic place diverter?
    I had My steering(tiller arm)arm modified by Jack Mclure,to fit the calgo and hydraulic ram, but am having trouble with interfearance of the top 90* hose fitting and the cable swivel clevis, that mounts to the arm. It is a real tight "Honeymoon" fit with a little rubbing. I would almost have to turn the elbow backwards to even have a chance of it working.

    I was just wandering if any one else has had the same troubles and how You corrected it. Pics would be really nice!.....Hal

    ok here are a few pics of what I am dealing with. These pics are for mock up only.
    here is the fitting facing in the proper direction. No chance of it working that way.







    Next I have tried different bolts and positions.

    Flip the cylinder so the fittings on the other side or put the rod end on the bottom side of tiller arm.

    What about rotating the cylinder so the fittings are inboard?

    Oops, looks like Chris beat me to it.

    Cs19, if You are talking about rotating the cylinder so the fitting is on the inside, I have tried that and it looks like there will be interfearance at the bowl when turning.

    Can the cylinder be assembled so that the top fitting is inboard and the lower is out?

    Nevermind, just looked at mine and see it can't be disassembled.

    here is what happens when the cylinder is rotated or fliped.

    This way would work best, but there is a problem with the connection at the bottom due to the stud too short and no swivel clevis or whatever You call it. Also looks weak that way.



    This way with the cylinder rotated inward, with hose fitting on there is interfearance at the bowl, when turning.

    Mount the Calgo Heim joints to the underside of the tiller arm. That will clear your fittings. Worst case you might need to remake your Calgo cable bracket so the cable lines up perfectly with the casing.
