replacing teleflex steering hub

it's my day for questions it seems.

my steering wheel wobbles, i assume the bushes inside the steering hub have degraded and fallen apart

the nut which holds on the wheel is so corroded that removal is nigh on impossible with out brute force and probably a fair dose of ignorance.

to remove wheel its probably gonna need hacksawing off so a new hub is needed plus a nice new steering wheel which in its self is no big loss

my question is what's the crack with removing and installing the cable into the new hub? is it straight forward, undo big nut at end of cable and pull then thread into the hole on new hub, spin wheel until the big nut can be done up?

If it's Teleflex type I think there's a fairly good online site to explain fitting it all together but you sound fairly close with your description.

Wouldn't bother hack-sawing, you'll be there all day. Get the angle grinder on it.

On a 3.4m rib with 40 horses i recon hydraulic is over kill. Lol

I want the rig to remain light weight, theres no electric start or trim n tillt so no batteries to carry or pumps.

Trying to employ the kiss principal and have less to go wrong. I hope.

lol, start off small and work my way up.

it's a philosophy i've used on motorbikes for the last 21 years and it's served me well.

that was the only bit of life advice my dear ol' dad ever gave me (aside from don't bother tying to understand women cos you never will. the sooner you realise that, the happier you will be!!).
