I plan on doing some work on my Cinkel steering pedestal and I would love to get a copy of your parts list.

Thanks

I posted the Cinkel parts diagram in the Gallery:


Also, some (many?) Edson parts are interchangeable with Cinkel.

Re: Cinkel Steering Help

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I have a Cinkel pedestal on my Bayfield 32 and I'm pretty sure it hasn't been serviced in years so I have a few questions that hopefully someone can answer.

1) How different is it from an Edson? Are any parts interchangeable? There are some obvious differences but then there seem to be a lot of similarities too.

2) Are there any tricks to disassembling it? I need to take the pedestal off to do some cockpit floor core repair so while it's off I thought I'd paint it and clean and lube the bearings etc.

3) Are there top plates available? I'd like to get a stainless top plate. The current cinkel is painted aluminum. It seems different enough that the Edson top plate won't work. The Cinkel top plate has 2 mounting holes fore-aft, and the Edson has 4 mounting holes. Maybe the Edson could be modified.

4) Engine control morse cables: Are these universal? Can I just buy a new set or are they specific to the Cinkel pedestal.

Thanks for any help.

-Tom

Re: Cinkel Steering Help

Tom

I think you are right that a lot of the parts look the same and most likely are but I would confirm by comparing dimensions.

Removing the pedestal is not that difficult, but than again I did not have any control cables to contend with. The worst part I found was getting the steering cables disconnected at the drive wheel below because of working space. The bearings can be lubed without disassembling the shaft by removing 2 screws on top of the bearings and forcing some grease into the hole while turning the wheel. Donít forget to cross your steering cables when you re-assemble the system.

One option on your existing top plate is to find someone to powder coat it the same color as the pedestal, it does look good and stands up much better than paint.

The control cables are made by Teleflex Marine (link below) and are available from most marine suppliers.

If you want to give me you email address I have lots of info I can send you

Good luck
Marten

Re: Cinkel Steering Help

I want to know if the Edson Marinre Pedestal Steering Brake is compatible with the Cinkel Pedestal. Can someone answer this please?

Berdel,
I think it might fit. I was able to use the Edson pedestal brake rebuilt kit for my Cinkel system.

I also want to thank you. I have a Cinkel system that I have been bringing back to life and was wondering about the brake kit.

Re: Cinkel Steering Help

Don and Berdel,

A word of caution: I said I think an Edson brake might fit a Cinkel steering system, but I'm not positive. I was able to use the Edson brake rebuild kit, which as I recall includes replacements for the wear parts like the rubber pads, but I have not tried installing the entire Edson brake in a Cinkel pedestal. If I were doing it I would call Edson and ask them for the detailed dimensions before ordering it.
