Dual Power Steering Pumps
I have a twin engine MerCruiser setup
with an obsolete priority valve for the steering that has been disabled by the previous owner of my Grady White. The steering system does not have a hydraulic helm, but instead uses a cable that is routed to the Saginaw type steering valve located on the inner transom of one of the drives. Currently, there is one power steering pump on each engine, but one is currently disconnected from the system. Both engines are equipped with power steering coolers that feed the reservoirs on the power steering pumps. Since the Mercury Marine priority valve kit (part #79681A1) is no longer available, can I use the IMCO Priority Valve as a replacement? Would the existing OEM hoses and fittings be compatible?
