On a power assisted setup the cable is doing very little work compared to a standard cable steering system, which means that you don't need hydraulics and you are much less likely to have problems with wear on the cable.

Make sure you carry a spare belt for the steering pump though!

Thanks John

Sounds like cable is fine for me then.

Will carry a spare belt as I never thought as that.

Thanks Gary
