Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Barry.

You've posed us quite a challenge!
A picture may help.

By the looks of that one you'll have to make your own spares

Sorry guys, I dont seem to be getting this image attached, I am still living in the crank telephone times.

I do know that the pedestal is not an edson ( I have been in touch with them and they cant tell me what it could be)

Pedestal

That was manufactured by Yacht Specialty's. Unfortunately, no longer in business.

steering brakes

Thanks for the info.

Is there anyone who might know what the brake parts look like to give me some sort of idea what I need to manufacture. All my attempts so far have not quite worked

Saw one similar to this on an older boat. Had a semi-circular bronze shoe floating against the sprocket extension, and was held to the brake screw by a recessed head bolt.

steering pedestal

Thanks Blue Stocking,

I have seen similar but on this one the brake knob pulls the brake mechanism. The edson also has the brons shoe system but I cant use that because the knob is at completely the wrong level.
