I'm looking to borrow a wing plate for external hydraulic steering for a volvo 280. I want to borrow one to 1) see if I could get external steering to work on a fairly busy transom and 2) to use it as a template to get another fabricated. I know Poodle had some made up a few years ago, but none are left. If anyone has one I could borrow I'd take very good care of it and return it promptly.

might be worth a trip to the boat yard, the bigger boats with twin volvos usually had tie bars and plates that were for external steering connections. Might find something you can use.

the last one i saw was a one off piece. it used a plate that had a saddle that used the 2 side connections from the helmet( which was removed). it attached to the 2 outer bolts of the cap. the plate had a cut out to allow checking of the drive oil dipstick. so it fastened to the drive at 4 points 2 on the side of the drive and 2 at the top of the drive. the plate extended about 2 inches from the cap in the back to allow the ram connection some room to work. the plate had provisions for dual rams but the system was only a single setup.

This is what the Latham plates Poodle had made look like. Mines installed on the drive already or I'd send it to you. I can give you exact sizes on the spacers and bolts if that'll help.

Let me see if I can find the one that used to be on my Eliminator. Bill
