(5) Steering System (figure 22).
Power is supplied to the main
steering gear (1) by an engine-driven pump (2). The fluid reservoir
(3) is shared with the main hydraulic system. The steering wheel (4)
is mechanically linked to the main steering gear.
motion is hydraulically transmitted to a piston in the slave gear (5)
causing it to follow the rotation of the main gear.
