I imagine the hydraulic shifter utilises paired (by hydraulic lines) master and slave hydraulic actuators/cylinders for both movements of the gear selectors.

The steering for the outboard engine on my small fishing boat has a similar system with the master being a rotary actuator on the wheel at the operator console, and a double rod, linear actuator that steers the outboard engine. There is no pump in the system, just the hydraulic fluid in the actuators and lines.

Thanks Paul.

With the MSA or MXA, the only issue I would have with that shifter is moving it right for the low gears (R & 1st) and left for the high gears (4th & 5th).

I think you would soon get used to it it was the only manual vehicle you drove.

Sorry to dig up the past. Paul do yo have any pics how this connects to the levers?
Hi, the pics show the shifter, the top of the box has a matching flange welded to it that the shifter bolts to. Bottom of stick engages the selector shafts the same as a normal stick shift would.
