My steering wheel
has been getting increasingly "wobbly". I am not at the boat but the maintenance
crew found that the wobble isn't in the attachment to the bulkhead (its never that easy is it?). The wobble seems to be coming from the steering head
itself...in two areas, the wheel shaft bearings and the gearbox
moves on its mount. Has anyone else had this trouble? The original parts
were made by Morse who I hear was absorbed by Teleflex and the Morse parts
are no longer available. Hopefully Teleflex parts are compatible but havent had a chance to contact their service
dept yet. Again, has anyone had this problem and does the diagnosis of needing a new helm station gearhead seem correct? I will get down to the boat in a day or two to confirm all this but hoped someone else had had the same problem with some advice.
