I’ve just been going back to my O level physics. I am going to investigate extending the seacock lever to gain additional mechanical advantage then have a series of blocks and cable to a single small winch. It should be possible to set it up so that as the winch winds and pulls in one direction it opens the valve and then turned in the other direction it closes it. I think mine opens in a plane roughly fore and aft so I could put the winch on the port side of the wheel with the cables going beneath the floor to the port side of engine box.
