Two Leading Valve
Neles, the high-technology valve manufacturer of Finland, recently announced that negotiations have been completed with Combustion

The ultimate in control flexibility and marine propulsion system protection!
A unique, dedicated control unit, Gear-Mate II converts electrical signals to pneumatic actuator commands (up to five-station capability) to operate throttles, shift reduction gear, power units, hydraulic pumps, and neutral delay feature for fast reversals.
Simplicity and savings.
A single multi-conductor cable links Gear-Mate II to remote operator stations. No need for intermediate shuttle valve; or tubing, mechanical control cabling or leaky hydraulic controls and fittings. There is no loss of command signal strength, no environmentally sensitive micro- processor to cause complex problems.
Because Gear-Mate II uses less ship air, has fewer operating parts, doesn't require copper tubing—you save installation, operating and maintenance costs.
Standard features include: reduction gear lockout, throttle interlock for reduction gear protection and trolling gear control. ® Registered Trademark. Schrader Bellows 88-25 '.-••• .'. 'I-.-'- . • W
