Bermuda - Hydraulic Pump And Drive (motor)

Recommended Posts

Not much help at all, I have a Bermuda 34, BMC engine with hydraulic drive and although I've seen it many times, I can't tell you the make.

But as a side note, feel this model from 1974, never came with this as delivered or was never designed for this.

The drive motor and thrust plate have been added and the pipe work from the pump although neat, still look like an after thought.

To the stern right is a space that looked as if a diesel tank once occupied with filled in filler hole.

The tank is mid ships now.

Some FB Wilds boats had BMCs and other Perkins, from memory. 

Really would need to see your installation to give you any further idea. 

Some, I think, were pumps embedded in the hydraulic tank. Others (which is more common in most other installations) had pumps coupled to the flywheel with separate tanks. 

Retrofitting might be challenging as its the issue of mounting that's the sticky spot. 

I have what I think is a Dowty pump at the yard that's looking for a new home, but, before I try to find that home, why are you asking? What is wrong with your installation?
