Re: Full Hydraulic steering
I've been checking on orbital valves and doing some other research. Most Orbital valves have a manual steering feature so you can steer without the engine running, they offer less power of course, but they are steerable.
As for the rams, I was planning on using one 8" inch and getting some spacers. I found a source for nice rams for around $50. I still need to measure the wheel travel left and right.
I'm not worried about road driving, the jeep isnt even street legal and only sees speeds up to about 40 MPH.
The biggest part of this project is the cost. I can convert to full hydraulic for under $500, and be able to steer in the rocks with ease, whereas if I went with an AGR RockRam setup or similar, I would be up near $1000.
What Orbital valves are people using?
I was thing of going with an Eaton, they seem to have a very large supply of different valves for different applications.
