Just went and looked at the Cheoy Lee unit on my Rhodes Reliant. (keep her in front of the house). It has a full circle assembly, bronze ring around the sprocket boss (mine is bevel gear), with the 2, 180degree castings fastened together with a machine screw top and bottom. the floating,bushed brake shaft is pinned into one casting, and the threaded wheel pulls this tight to lock the wheel.

Thanks Blue stocking,

that sounds very much like something that could work with my system.

Would it be posible to post a picture? I am having a problem visualising it in its entirety.

Barry

steering pedestal

Hi Blue Stocking,

please dont think im being pushy, I just want to let you know that I would still be interestet to see pictures of your steering brake system if posible. At this stage I am no closer to the solution than when I started.

Thanks

Barry

Barry - let us know how you make out, please! I have a Yacht Specialties pedestal that never came with a brake, I believe. There is just a rubber plug in the hole where the brake adjuster would be.

Trisailing,

that is briliant, I wasnt even close with all my attempts, I was thinking much simpler.

Thanks a million

Barry

Barry,
Your welcome.

Parts pedestal? Good price and it's an Yacht Specialties pedestal, though not mentioned.

Sorry for the interruption, and I would look at Edson gear for both an understanding and replacement parts, several of which are direct fit...except the brake!

i have i did it when i had to replace quadrant wheel to replace and new cables. what ever style you have take wheel or quadrant off or loosen and slide up steering shaft. there are i think 3 (1/4 20) bolts undo them lift up cover remove old packing and replace. we have a GulfStar 37 like Slacker and our packing gland is above water level when boat is at rest. isn't much room in our aft lazzerette so was a pain in the but. i don't think it had ever been changed since 79, but came apart easily
