SmartPilot X-5 Wheel
After following the manual, running cables
, cutting holes, and "owning" the wheel
pilot, I realized, the pin that mounts to the pedestal
would not fit my standard edson
pedestal. The curved piece of the pin mount was too big.
rep said he had worked there for 10 years and only heard of one other guy with my problem. He actually suggested jb weld.
I came up with a simple solution. The photos should be clear to any other poor bastard such as myself who may be just starting to scratch his head
looking for a solution. Hoping a few minutes here posting
may save someone some time or at least offer a starting point for further evolution.
There's a cork gasket
that you can't see to help grip and protect the pedestal. Local welder fabricated the assembly for $30. You can see where I had to cut away a corner to give the motor
case some space.
