Old edson pedestal throttle / shift levers

Hi
I need to make the levers that attach to the cables inside the pedestal & the handles on the outside. See highlighted in red in the picture.

Does anyone have any cad drawings / dimensions?

Obviously I can get the bore dia from the pedestal and my new handles, and pretty much guess the rest from photos like these.

I was wondering as well how they are prevented from moving in / out ( shown with double Aro ) is there a groove maybe?

Mine is a 1982 boat, and I guess original pedestal ( just a guess )

anyway, thanks for any help.

Catalina Direct has the whole shooting match for sale as a retro-fit. You could try contacting them and see if they would sell only the pieces you need.

Re: Old edson pedestal throttle / shift levers

Contact Adam Cove at Edson 508-995-9711 or adam@edsonintl.com. He'll ask for diameter of pedestal head, steering shaft size and a few other questions. Does your wheel nut say Edson on it? Then you likely have Edson. They sell replacement kits but I've bought a few single pieces from them over the years to keep the cost down. Adam is very helpful. Edson Marine
If you have Merriman/Yacht Specialties you are faced with making your own unless you can find some second hand. If you have Cinkel it is likely disolving right before your eyes.

Re: Old edson pedestal throttle / shift levers

I bought new ones for a great price at Marine Part Depot.
Decent stuff for great prices.

Re: Old edson pedestal throttle / shift levers

Cool runnings, was that the part I have highlighted or the actual handles you move? I already have some new handles ( from them actually! ) thanks either way

thanks 1canajun, do you have a photo? ( or could you take a photo? ) I need to go and measure up on the boat to make sure I'm getting the right levers. But I'd be keen to see what you have.

many thanks
