I have a SR4 with a 60HP merc on the back, one old crusty Teleflex and the original AVON steering wheel.. I must say that it tends to "pull" a bit to the left, and absolutely not something i would cross the channel with, but hydraulic´s?? Its just a dingy you know!! Just se it as a bit of work out.

(it is also reassuring to know that the old lady will come back for you, if you should suffer the misfortune of taking a dip)

You need no feedback steering.

The helm unit has a clutch in it which engages when you turn the wheel to operate the steering, When the wheel stops moving it disengages so you get "no feedback" through the steering or torque steer.

Ahh I see.. No torque steer.. Allthough I would think that such a system would stress the inner core exessively, and why not just use a self-locking worm gear for this?..

Gonna hang the BF50 tomorrow, should I give it some offset or go central? If so, 25mm? Cheers.

On principle, I´d go with a slight offset like you mentioned, 10-20mm just to counter the twist.
Is the height OK, In my oppinion thats the most critical aspect of engine matching..
