Thakns for the info. I filled out the data sheet and sent it to the company for their recommendation. Does your system have resovoir filled with fluid that is pumped up with an external air pump?

DARTHZ1,
My reservoir is up at the wheel. The pump is within the reservoir. The fluid is pumped by a series of revolving pistons when the wheel is turned. The pistons pump the fluid down to the cylinders. I''m no engineer so that is the best I can describe it. I dismantled it myself to replace seals without any trouble. Pretty simple design actually. My pump is made by Capilano, which I believe is on the Seastar website. Good luck with your search.
