The past few weeks have been inspecting and servicing the steering system from the wheel through to the Rudder Quadrant.
This came about because I know I need to rebed all the deck fittings including the Steering Pedestal. So while its almos out its an opportune time to have a really close look at all the components.
Sorry a bit slack on the photos but all up we replaced the bushes holding the steering shaft, freed up the rudder lock which I'm sure has not operated for a long time and replaced both of the wire cables after finding severe wear in one of the cables probably a result of the worn cable guides, also replaced.
I also found this which just goes to show how important it is to disassemble components during your deep level inspections. This is the connection sckle between the wire steering cable and the rudder quadrant.
