a stainless steel piston rod with a sea water resistant anodized aluminum
The steering pumps are also provided with a continuous air bleeding point. The

A single OBC300 cylinder can operate a twin outboard motor
installation. If both propellers rotate in the same direction, the total output
of the engines should not exceed 300 hp. If the motors have counter-rotating
propellers, the maximum combined power can be 600 hp. The OBC175 cylinder can
also be used for twin installations, but in this case the joint maximum output
is limited to 175 hp or 350 hp for counter-rotating propellers.
