Moody 47 Built 1986

Hi all
Hope that someone can help me with a major problem with the steering on this Moody 47. The steering has gotten heavier since last year and on investigation I have discovered that the quadrant at the stern has dropped down onto the frame below and is rubbing on it. The question is , firstly has anyone else had a similiar problem and how did they do the repair.

many thanks in advance.

Boatie has given you very good advise...Moody Owners Assoc. but to actually get feedback you will need to join, think its around 20 British Pounds.
