Trying to help a friend fix a clunk in his pedestal steering
. The pedestal
is Yacht Specialities Co. which I understand was owned by Teleflex before going under in 1989.
The problem is a clunk noise
and associated jarring that happens when the rudder
swings to its limit on either side. A problem that was noticed after someone with a heavy hand had been driving and possibly damaged it.
Not sure what to make of it. I wonder if the attachment from wire rope
to the chain is catching on something? Any insight would be most appreciated.
