Capilano Question

Capilano 275V helm unit was replaced by the 1275V whats the differences ( dont say one at the front)
With only a 2 pipe ram there would be no need for a uniflow 50 valve ( ie 2nd helm unit) oui/no???

Got the answer
The difference with the 250/275V and the newer model Capilano Helm pumps, is that the new Capilano Pumps have a built in check valve, whereas on the older systems there would have been a Model 50 uniflow valve. If you are replacing an old system with a new one, the uniflow valve will not be needed in the system, simply remove the third line going to the valve and use only the two port and starboard lines directly back to the steering cylinder.

Ive gotta seastar helm on mine but looking on the capilino site it is identical to mine! Even down to colour! So i went on the seastar site and they even use the same part number! 1270 or 1275! Take it one or the other makes them an the other just re labels it?
