    Default Which Full Hydraulic Steering System do you guys recommend?

    So the Twin turbo setup I am putting in my boat wont fit unless I get rid of the power steering bracket and pump.
    So I want to go Full Hydraulic Steering. Which is the best brand?
    1989 Checkmate Maxxum 229 with Bravo 1 outdrive.

    Thanks for the input.

    Jason

    Well that sucks, i thought full Hydraulic eliminates the power steering pump. I called Hardin Marine and asked them too and yes you are correct. they did say Mercury Make an electric power steering i could switch over to. So i will look into that. relocating the power steering pump is going to be a huge fabrication issue for me. So i need to upgrade my steering anyways.
    I will be running an Old Gale Banks Twin turbo setup.

    Jason, I have an OMC king cobra setup and the power steering is very low. Maybe this setup will work for you and you would only need to find the bracket. Much cheaper than full hydraulic steering setup

    this could be an option, thanks Tahoe540. My alternator sits just below my power steering pump as well, but i could see about relocating everything to the layout similar to your OMC. I will check into it.

    Curious how the alternator is mounted at the bottom?

    When you get it all mounted can you take pictures. Not sure if this will work for me.
    My manifold goes past the front edge of the head maybe a half inch. Really hard to tell if it would work for me.

    Thanks

    Jason
