The Kobelt hydraulic steering system was designed with the
avid sailor in mind. The skipper can feel the pressure of the
rudder by turning the lock valve (model 7018), to the “open”
position. If a certain course or rudder position needs to be
maintained, the valve can be closed (engaging the lock valve)
holding the hydraulic oil in position, until the steering wheel
is turned to a new heading. This is handy when leaving
the wheel to set sails or handing over the helm to a less
experienced first mate.
7018 can be ordered in either Black, White, Chrome or
polished Bronze. When ordering a helm pump to go with
this unit, tell your Kobelt dealer that you want a helm
pump that works with a porting block.

The normal way to operate hydraulic steering is to rotate the helm pump (steering wheel) which pushes oil
through the lock valve (check valve) to the cylinder. The 7018 lock valve allows you to open the check valves for
free flow in both directions, enabling you to feel back pressure from the rudder.

The 7018 should be installed below the helm pump for easy bleeding. A porting block must replace the existing lock valve on the
back of the helm pump. It can be changed in the field too.
Just tell your Kobelt dealer that you want a helm pump that works with the remote lock valve (model 7018).
At any time, you can add any of
these to your system:
