Goiot Steering Pedestal

Has anyone here about had occasion to rebuild their Goiot 502 Steering Pedestal? A friend of ours on his way to PR is sitting at Samson Cay with a steering problem. It seems one of the bearings supporting the steering sprocket shaft has given up the ghost. I have contacted Goiot regarding replacement bearings with no answer thus far and there is also a question about whether a roll-pin or set screw locks the chain sprocket in place on the shaft. Any information on this repair will be appreciated.

s/v HyLyte

Re: Goiot Steering Pedestal

Pretty sure its a roll pin. Had the same problem, gave everything to a machine shop Phuket, and it came back fixed. They did't have SS bearings to put in, but I pack everything with grease periodically and haven't seen any rust.

Don--

Thanks for the note. Amazingly I have located replacement bearings at Goiot's US distributor which is now about 10 miles from where we live in Sarasota, Florida. In the 502 they are "Nyliners" not roller bearings (surprised me). The question about the roll/drift pin/set screw remains. If it's a roll pin I guess the sprocket isn't very tight on the shaft so one can aleign the holes eh?

Thanx again...

Re: Goiot Steering Pedestal

I can't speak for the Goiot, but I decided against a rebuild on my Solimar pedestal. The cost of the parts, painting, and labor was far more than buying a new one. The new one was only $530.

Have you contacted NavimoUSA?

Re: Goiot Steering Pedestal

I guess I don't have a model 502, as my pedestal has roller bearings. Its been a while since I had it apart, but seems to me my sprocket has a keyway and the pin is at one end of it and just keeps it from sliding off.

Yes. They're in Sarasota, Fl and I did manage to get the bearings. Thanks for the tip.

Ah Ha. The exploded drawing did not make that clear. It makes perfect sense tho. Thanks very much Don.

Re: Goiot Steering Pedestal

I have a Goiot 502 steering pedestal, 1985, with worn bearings, and am trying to figure out how to remove the key on the shaft in order to get the sprocket and shaft out, and ultimately replace the bearings. The key is a pin (see photo) but I can't figure out how to remove it. I made the probable mistake of trying to tap it out one side, but now it seems even more immovable. Is there a trick?
