you must have some awesome steering lock. i am only using 8" of ram on a unimog axle.


do you get any reactive steering if you say force one tyre at half steering lock into a vertical ledge while the other front tyre is cruising on easy ground?

The steering lock depends on how far out on the steering arm you drill the hole (or how far out the hole is you are using)... I got my steering arms un-drilled and put the holes where I wanted it.

I was going to go for a 7" stroke and drill the holes closer in, but Sean (station on POR) talked me into going for 8" as that is what most people are using and it would give me better force with the arms drilled out further.

You do get some 'feel' if one or both of the tires is under stress trying to turn them one way or the other... same as any power steering setup... but the 'feel' you get is very subtle (unlike most regular power steering setups).

It kinda helps to feel the terrain that you can't see, but the hydraulic force is waaaaay more than any outside force trying to overcome it!

oh, and you can steer the system while the engine and/or pump are not running... this is because the steering valve acts like a little pump. It is hard work, but you can still steer. Pretty similar to when the engine is off for regular power steering.
