Ian, if you get stuck for a manual for the stern drive shout and I will photocopy mine for you. I turned my engine cowlings round to face aft and yes they fouled the grab rail so had Portchester engineering chop 4" out and re weld it, you can't see the join. The engine lid needed reinforcing though as its quite thin away from the oringinal holes.

The kill switch is a great idea but what are you going to attach it to. (Mermaid do a soleniod for the fuel injection pump which it could be fitted to).

the steering wheel hydraulic unit is a standard taper so any of the vetus ones will fit and alot cheaper than volvo. Think the standard wheel is 16" which is bigger than most but helps with the high speed turns.

Seb still haven't worked out the fuel to any great accuracy but working out about 1 LPM at the moment.

Roohairy, had Flew sails in Portchester make up a seat before now. Just send them the base and ask Mark to recover it.

Crank shaft oil seal weeping at the moment which is an engine out job

Pete

Thanks Pete, but I don't even have the base! Afraid the crank seal is a crank out job as well if it's the same as the Dorset block. I was thinking about using a Vetus Helm pete, any comments? I know it's not 'original' but it's also a lot cheaper. Haven't heard anything negative about them, is there anything special about the Wagner unit that means I should pay the extra for it?

I need a new seat for mine, anyone replaced the seat and got any hints about where to go?
Thanks!
They are hardy spicer and I am heading to bearing services for some for my boat.
Woods in Crediton had a couple of seats about 6 months ago but they are unlikely to know what they are for, so you would either have to visit or send a sketch.

Roohairy
The reason I put back what was the original pump was that the time taken to fit a new different pump would outweigh the saving, the console has all the right holes in the right places and all I had to do was screw it in.
Another issue to consider if fitting different pump is number of turns to fluid pumped, if the helm pump doesnít pump enough you will have to turn the steering loads to go lock to lock. If the pump pumps too much the steering will be heavy. . Equally make sure the new pump doesnít stick out too far, itís quite a tight console so if the pump sticks out further you might have problems.

If it is the UJ's itís a leg off job

One quick check is to take out one of the Allan headed screws in the side plate (just above the water line on a calm day)and see what comes out if it is grey oil either your boot has gone or the bottom prop. seal, either way boat out quick and drain and flush the leg before more damage occurs. Des

Des, Getting fed up typing this, 3rd time lucky - keep on losing my internet connection.

Can you or anyone tell me how many turns hard over to hard over the standar P22 is, and do you think that this is about right, anyone like to change it?

Do you have anymore info on the people who had the seats Des, don't know them not my part of the world!

Uj

Iain,

The U/j is a hardy spicer. These joint repair kits are available from any bearing dealer. The best way is to take the joint in to a auto repair shop ie. the workshop that would rebore your engine etc, and let them do it. They will be able to supply the parts and fit them for about 2 hours labour.

Its possible to do it yourself, but it is a bit troublesome sometimes. They need to get knocked out, then pressed back together. Easier to let the shop do it.

I might have a service exchange one if you need one. Send me a PM.
I suppose you could possibly change the uj with the boat in the water, if you removed the intermediate bearing housing (4 bolts) that should give you access. You would then pull the UJ from the inside, and leave the bellows on. But your bellows maybe full of water - I suppose you would find out soon enough!

The wagner steering realistically isnt much different from any other system, just alot more expensive. Lots of other companies make them, and even the same flow rate so you will still get the same lock to lock . Try Vetus etc.

Good luck!
