Default Mercury 280s K-Plane Pump & Ram Questions.

i am finishing up a 1985 30ft Velocity Twin Outboard Project.

I plan to re-install the 280s K-Planes that came with it.

I have a variety of the old style Merc Power Trim and K-Plane Pumps. I can't remember if the K-Plane Pumps are any stronger or faster than the trim puimps. Does anyone know?

I also plan to replace the Hydraulic Rams as they do not match. Other than Merc, does anyone have or know of another source I could get them from?

Is another indicator system available other than running manual cables up the dash?

Any info would be appreciated
