There are two ways to post pictures. You can make an album in your profile and upload photos there or you can go up to "photos" under the Cruisers Forum banner and hit the "add photo" button. Those photos will show up available to see under your avatar and name. Good luck and yes, keep us posted!

Maybe I'm not using the photo feature of this forum correctly?

When you say "add photo" do you mean "insert image"? Inserting an image is OK if you can insert the image location. If the photo is one of my own I've been uploading it as an attachment.

On a few occasions I have uploaded the photo to Photobucket then used "insert image" but I find that is a PITA.

I will explore the use of the Album feature in my profile.

NO! NO! I see what you mean now. Maybe create my own album and link photos from there for my posts?

That's one way to do it. Here is a link to a shot of the world's finest sailboat.

But don't you see this when you hit the "Photos" pull down menu at the top?

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

One of the guys at the yard informed me that back in the day some of the boat builders would sometimes make their own rivets, basically a bronze dowel they would insert and hammer over on both ends. So knowing that I just ground off both ends and tapped those dowels out. Once those dowels are out itís just a matter of coaxing that pintle off. They use some kind of sick of flex type sealant when installing the pintle, someone suggested I use heat to soften up that sealant to make it a little easier to remove. I didnít feel like crawling topside to grab my torch so I went about pulling it off without it. Pulling it off required some tapping and Prying but it eventually falls off of there and when it does itís just about as heavy as it looks, I barely caught the thing in mid air.

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

OK, I think I’m slowly figuring it out I just can’t seem to post pics without double posting everything, guess I got to pick my battles. If I accidentally deleted anybody else’s post my apologies

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

Taking apart all the gearing assembly up top was a little bit of a bear, but once you release the lock set hex nut screws on all of the rings holding the gearing in placeYou can tap the whole gearing assembly down which will give you access to the gear key placed in the slot in the back of the rudder shaft

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

This gear key was something I was unfamiliar with and took me a minute to figure out, but in the back side of the shaft is a slot where a piece of metal fits into it and then also fits into the gear arm attached to the wheel.

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

Once I get your key is removed the rudder and shaft fall down pretty easily, but once the rudder shaft comes down all the gearing assembly up top immediately comes apart. Luckily I didn’t lose any parts but there’s a space between your fuel tank and your hall that would be extremely difficult to retrieve any lost washers or screws from. If I was to do this again I definitely stuff a towel or some thing down there to cover that gap just as a safety net.

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

And just for reference here are the rings with hex nuts to keep all the gearing in place

I’ve been doing most of these posts with voice text so sorry if it reads a little bit squirrelly, hope everyone gets the gist.

Re: 1979 Cheoy Lee rudder removal

Came out great. All readable.
It will be a nice feeling when you put it all back shiny and clean and greased, good to go for another 10 or 20 years!
