Re: Help Please ! Swivel Bracket and Steering Arm

My dear friends, after successive episodes of the difficulty solving the problem of frozen shaft, with injection of WD-40, 2-stroke oil, diesel, rust remover, the best solution was with the use of a torch at the base shaft.
Problem: Salt and maybe rust.
Solution: Orings still in good condition, after heating, grease and more grease where pushed all the salt out.
At this time the shaft is more like butter. Just one finger to turn the wheel.
My thanks to everyone who helped me, thank you very much.

Salt: incredible stuff, isn't it?!

Probably was put away damp and allowed to get crusty once too often. Isn't it nice that sometimes, it is just a simple bother, not an expensive fix?

Dear Friend, thank god it was not allocated considerable expense, with just under € 50 could have my intentions.
Undoubtedly, your help was very important indeed. maybe my fault I let things get to this point in the future I will be giving more attention and be more careful maintenance.
The next steps for tomorrow Sunday, will be the removal of the stickers on the sides of the hull and polishing, removing rust and paint (red lead and epoxy) mount kit (9),(15 first photo).
