Not as straight forward as it seems, the travel of most lifters is greater than a 33c's travel!

Std, same as a 33c, it's all sorted by the actuator, which they supply for both 5" and 7" of travel.

No, I left that bit out! I have some stops fitted to my lift that only allow it to travel the same amount as the cable can which is approx 4" the CMC lifter can travel 5 1/2" but that is plenty for me.

The stupid bit is the shipping, duty and vat. The part is about $50.00.

Next time I bring a jackplate in, I'll bring some extra actuators with it.

You could use an offset pivoty lever thingy (as pictured) behind the dash somewhere to shorten the cable travel to the dash unit!!!

Thats exactly what the stainless marine actuator is. Have a word with Bluefin, he may have one he could measure/photograph for you!
