Adjusting wheel brake

Hi. We have a wheel brake that when screwed all the way in still doesn't brake the wheel at all. Any suggestions on how to service it? The nut shown has a 100mm bolt at the rear that goes into the centre of the shaft.
Thanks for any advice.Click image for larger version

Re: Adjusting wheel brake

If its an Edson, they sell a service kit for the brake.

Re: Adjusting wheel brake

Says "Goiot" on the face of the nut. I dont know this specific wheel, but like the Edson mentioned, most are very simple and kits are available. Most are just a friction pad(s) tightened by screwing down the nut. Probably the pads are just worn.

I suggest looking for Goiot helm diagrams and parts.

Re: Adjusting wheel brake

If you don't get an answer here ask on one of the Beneteau or Jeanneau forums as they have Goiot pedestals.

Thanks Belize. It doesn't even look like an Edson. The Admiral has been telling me to get my eyes examined....

Re: Adjusting wheel brake

Looking up 'wheel brake' gets you nothing for those types. Google 'wheel spinner,' or 'brake spinner' and I think that these days Lewmar is making them. Try 'goiot brake spinner'

Re: Adjusting wheel brake

Try dropping (pushing??) a small ballbearing down the shaft. If the friction stuff is worn, the added length you've just given the shaft will stop it from slipping on what's left of the friction material.
Your local brakepad or clutchplate company should be able to advise you on replacing the stuff.
