    Are they on the same boat? Just kidding, but some photos and project details (motor make model, hull make model) would help.

    This is the Teleflex set up, off the shelf nothing special. twin/trip/quad engines are routine here in So Florida.
    These components should be in every Distributor Catalog in any good Dealers Shop, even down island.

    Xlent. It looks different to the few I have seen. I guess the 'tapered' front section allows for multiple size holes in a console.

    It occurs to me, there must be ways of connecting an autopilot directly in-line, without having to attach an arm to the wheel.


    EDIT: Ps, wow, the hydraulic pilot setup is half the proce of a cable control. What an incentive

    Also, for the OP, I came across this diagram for setting up multiple outboards with hydraulics that might be useful

    Once you fit hydraulic steering you would not want a cable type again.
