Default auto pilot with power steering

Talked with Simrad and they said to put the auto pilot pump after the power steering pump. Which seems wrong to me. I think the it should be the other way around. Also the helm has four hoses coming off it.

It goes between the power steering pump and the steering ram. So they are right. I would sell your pump though and install the Seastar power steering add-on pump.

Jim I'm going to call you next week when I'm back at the boat and order all the hoses and other parts I need. The pump thats on the boat now turns on when the keys are turned to the on setting. The helm has four hoses coming off it. One from the pump to the helm and a return line to the pump oil tank. The other two head to the rams on the motors. I'm going to need three T's, Hoses and what ever else you think I need.

Ah I'll get you the following week. I'll take a bunch of pictures. I'm not 100% ready for the auto pilot. Still have a bunch of wires to run.
