I've dropped Wagner a note to ask what the capacity is. There is no capacity listed in the literature I've found. As a guess if needed, I'll measure the two cylinder chambers and figure out if they are additive.

I have measured rams with no identification by filling them with hydraulic oil and measuring the amount it takes to fill it.

Yours is not the typical cylinder so you can not get an approximate volume by measuring diameter and stroke.

The W36’s have Wagner T-2 tillers, the displacement is 9.9 cubic inches. Mine has a Raymarine Type 1 autopilot pump, with a Cetrek autopilot. Works well. Bill
