The length of the hydraulic lines from the helm to the outboards is around 40′. Finding pre-made hoses of that length was difficult. Luckily Wazoo (My Boss) knows Steve Bouthot from PRC Industrial Supply in Portland Maine and he provided me with the 1/4″ and 3/8″ hydraulic hose on a roll and the stainless steel fittings so I could cut them to just the right length for the Mercury Outboard system. He also provided the hydraulic crimping tool to attach the fittings.
I had never done this so I went to school. Just watch….
I still have three more lines to make to complete the system. Then it will need to be filled and bled to purge the air.
Hang to the Riggins,
