My 1988 32, hull 15, uses the original steering cylinder. The autopilot pump 
connects to the cylinder plumbing near the cylinder, and in autopilot mode 
the steering wheel is disabled. If you need to know the actual bore and 
stroke of the ram, measure the OD of the cylindrical portion, subtract 3/8 
inch, and you'll be pretty close. You can measure the stroke just by turning 
the wheel in both directions and measuring the stroke at the ram.
