Re: PSC 34 Below Deck Autopilot Drive Unit??
Here is a photo that shows the installation of the bellow-deck hydraulic autopilot on my Pacific Seacraft 34.
I annotated the photo to identify the drive unit, the pump, and the electric motor and fluid reservoir attached to the pump.
Some drive units have the pump, electric motor, and reservoir all attached in one unit. Having the pump, electric motor, and fluid reservoir separate from the drive unit, as shown in my photo, I think makes the installation easier, certainly if there is a space problem fitting in the drive.
