Looking at single ram vs double or full hydraulic, $1300 + 300 install for single. What are the pros and cons?
The double ram is a balanced system and the single is a unbalanced system. This matters to the helm you might use, call Lathem steering first to make sure you dont end up with problems. The balance problem is the amount of fluid it takes to open a ram is more than to close the ram and with two rams it will balance out. I found this out the hard way with a single side mount ram on a single engine outboard. most helms and power assited unit need to have equal flow in and out.Hope this helps but call the Experts!Looking at single ram vs double or full hydraulic, $1300 + 300 install for single.
