- It converts the linear motion of the rams to rotary motion of the rudder stock.
- Rudder Drop Allowance is included so that the drop of rudder along with the tiller does not effect the rams , same way jumping of the rudder is also included
- Maximum Torque is available at maximum angle when Torque requirement is greatest
