we found that there is an arm, bolted to the rudder stock, above the quadrant, that had worked loose.
That will do it - had the same problem a few years ago with my Alpha autopilot - the set screw had become loose, and a tiny little difference at the rudder post made a huge difference in direction, and for that matter in just driving straight. Only 28 years on my unit, where can I get something that will last? ;-)
