Eamonn, I just read my post after sending it and I don't think I made the extension arm so heavy ,it is probably made from 1/8" ,3/16" steel at most. I will be down to the boat one day soon , and could take measurements for you ,if you like. I could make a template of the arm and mail it to you as well ,let me know.

Subject: Re: [AmelYachtOwners] Linear drive installation
I would also like to install a second autopilot with the linear type 2L/24V drive unit directly connected to the quadrant. Your pictures clearly show what you did.
How did you make the quadrant arm longer, or did you make a new one? Was it easy to remove?
Did you position the Raymarine ACU-400 near the drive unit (where exactly) or closer to the cockpit? On SM where Amel made the installation, where is the ACU-400 placed?
