Steering cables as well to the wheel and hydraulic rams to the quadrant for both autopilots. 
Interestingly: OEM autopilot pump is in the ER, the secondary we installed under the rear berth contained in the quadrant area.

On Amelia, the steering cables are Morse type and the autopilot has its ram direct to the rudder quadrant as well of course to the rotary drive secondary autopilot drive.  No hydraulic hoses.

Teun,

That is a sharp edge. No wonder the hydraulic steering hose was cut.

Every 54 owner should check this especially if you only have one autopilot.
