I'm new to this forum and new to working on RIBs and wonder of you can help?
I've recently bought a Humber that's in need of some TLC. Work is progressing, e.g hull painted, new floor covering down, engine service, and the old console removed, and that's where I've hit a problem.
In taking the old console off I attempted to remove the steering. All went well until I got to the worm drive when this happened, please see photos.
The new console is now down and glassed in. It looks like I will have to cut a large enough hole in it to pass the drive through, and that will only be if you think that I can get the alloy repaired, could I glue it, weld it, or is this just broke now and needs another?
Thanks very much for any help you can offer
