Andy, If memory serves and yes it is failing The cable end is a push in and retained by the R clip.

Now this sound brutal but have you tried attaching a mole grip and attempting to tap it out?

Good luck with it

Brian

Edit:

Look here http://www.glen-l.com/supplies/teleflex-290.html bottom picture gives a clue.

That's what I've just done, and all that happens is the mole grips are slipping down the coller .There is a tiny little hole as shown in pic number one, would this be part of the release mechanism?

Doh!!
I trust youv'e sprayed with a release agent. I'm certain that our's on our old RIB pushed in and the clip retained it. Is it possible to split the casing? The Piccy shows 4 screws, but I guess these could be solid also 'cause of dissimilare metals.

Didn't want to split it as there are two rivets to drill out before both halfs of the casing come apart, have spayed with WD40 just before the molegrips thing but will try again tomorrow. If I get held up too much I'll take an angle grinder to it, but I'd rather keep it in one peice.

Just off to collect my Hydraulic Steering from the Hovercraft.

Speak to you later Brian and Martin.

I was nosing around our one the other day, it had a label attached describing how to remove the cable.
1. Remove the R clip
2. Push the tip of the R clip into the small hole
3. While holding it there get someone to turn the wheel
This worked for ours the cable started to come out, looking at yours it looks as if itís a bit corroded and may need a little persuasion i.e a big hammer.

Andy,

That looks identical to the problem i had with mine.

As i was replacing anyway i took the angle grinder option and it worked a treat! i still have no idea how it should come apart but it dont matter not as i have a shiney new one on there!

Be brutal and use the angle grinder but watch out for sparks!!!

I really wanted to keep it, as one day (soon I hope) I'll be upgrading the Hull and sticking all me upgraded bits, like outboard, hyd steering etc, to it. Then I'll get out all my old stuff and stick it back onto the original hull and sell her on the another beginner like I was/am.

On a different light, I saw one of those XS RIBS today for the first time. It was suspended in a cradle at a yard in Old Portsmouth and I got a good view from underneath......Impressive!!

Andy
