You've pretty much got it in the first paragraph, but you lost me on the second one ??willyswanter said:Like everyone else I'm confused...
I'm going to assume that your going to have a ram on the axle that is controlled by the valv. Now, you use the cable to put the lever on the valve at the same position as the knuckles.
But my question is, when you pull the lever on the valve, the fluid is going to flow into the ram and move the knuckles which will in turn hold the lever in the pulled position which will keep fluid flowing to the ram thus holding it there, how would you return the valve to center or back the other way?
Exactly! But instead of showing, I'm hoping it will give me a good feel of the wheels, so I don't have to look all the time. Needs a little getting used to I'm sure, but hopefully better than visual indicators, or the standard relative pos joystick/return to center button.ZAG said:looks like you are using lever position to show where your tires are turned.
It won't stay open, the lever will not bottom out in the groove... it still has more angle.Nordic1 said:Cool but yea... Wouldn't that valve stay open at full turn?
Very original idea as far as I am concerned.
I wonder if this could be done with sensors on the front steering and an eletricl control valve
Yup, that's pretty much how the idea started. But I soon found out what Scott is saying, that you will need it very seldom, and rather have independent control of the rear wheels most of the time.braxton357 said:Would be cool to use that same principle except attach the cable to the front axle and use it to steer the rear end opposite the front automatically rather than show where the wheels are turned...
