SIMRAD AUTOPILOT HYDRAULIC HOOKUP QUESTIONS

Rate this topic

3 posts in this topic

This should be a question more properly addressed to Simrad; however they just suck for technical customer support (And on that basis alone, I would advise utilizing an equivalent competitor such as Garmin).

The project is installing this Simrad RPU 80 Autopilot pump into a standard SeaStar helm/cylinder hydraulic steering system.  I have to "T" this Autopilot pump into the system.  Picture No. 1 shows the two choices of ORB fittings Simrad sent with their RPU 80 Autopilot pump.  Picture No. 2 shows the standard SeaStar 3/8 ORB hose end which I need the RPU 80 to adapt to.

 

Can somebody identify to me a "T" fitting that would allow me to connect TWO, standard SeaStar hoses, directly to the RPU 80 Autopilot female ORB port-- thus eliminating need for use of any of the Simrad adapter fittings (Picture 1).

You should be able to find the fittings you need in any plumbing supply store. Just make sure you get the ones designed for high pressure. I put mine in so long ago I don't remember exactly what I did.

Almost forgot, I think Kellog marine supply carries them, so you can probably get them almost anywhere overnight.
