Okay I need an orbital but which one and what the difference between self generating and not. Do I need to change my steering pump to hydraulic pump for more volume? Which size ram work the best 2x8 or smaller. Its a trail rig only.If you have any pics that would be greatly appreciated. What over parts besides this do I need. Thanks for any help Rob <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0"> Also one last thing how do you hook your steering shaft to the orbital.

heres a pic of my setup..i cant remember the exact out put of the vavle but i think it was like 3.5 turns and the displacement was like7.3..a self generating valve will let you turn when you have no power,we all used our saginaw pump but you will need to run a cooler <IMG SRC="smilies/confused.gif" border="0">

i think you can buy just the steering column part and cut the splines off and use them..or i think ive heard that they sell just the splined part..

you shouldnt need any check valves or control valves.you will need to have a line made up that goes from the high preesure end of your pump to the orbital valve,then you will need a return(from the valve back to the pump)that is probably the line you want to put your cooler in..then you need two more hoses,one from the pump for left hand steering,one from the pump for right hand steering..i believe the orbital valve is marked on the backwith four letters: L will be for left,R will be for right,P will be for pressure,T will be for tank...

err.... the other 2 hoses go From the orbit valve R and L ports to the cylinder, not From the Pump...
I use a pressure gauge and a temp gauge also. I also have a flow control valve on the return side (for pre-loading the cylinder) and a pressure relief valve in the line from the pump to the orbit valve (for a safety bypass), but you can get away without them.

If you get a column that is made for the valve you are useing, you just need to hack off the steering wheel portion and weld any other column to it...I mounted my valve behind the dash, but you can mount it anywhere you want...
