I have one i can take picture of. My feeling is not needed. A line connected to your tilt cylinders would do the job in emergency.

Willard emergency tiller info

Any info or pictures you could post would be great.

I can duplicate it if I know what it looks like.

I know what you are saying about making do with lines in an emergency.

I would just like to have an original tiller from a historical and complete boat perspective.

Would you consider selling yours ?

Dave

Chris, is there a ~30 degree offset to the base of your where it slides into the Konrad? It looks parallel.

On mine there is an offset so that it fits under the stainless rail on the transom and misses the center post. If it doesn't have the offset, yours must be taller so that it just goes over the top and avoids all that.

Dave, sounds like there might be two options, (a) straight and high enough to avoid the railing on the transom, or (b) lower by 12 inches but with an offset of ~30 degrees so that it can go under the railing and avoid the center post.

I attached a picture of the tiller out of the Konrad maintenance manual. Mine looks like that.

(also, the portion that goes into the Konrad on mine is tapered while it looks like Chris' is more square. You know what you'll need to fit your outdrive.)

Yeah mine is straight. The offset version is an interesting idea.
