Re: Steering Problem

After looking at billyrufn's diagram, I realized that he has an older version of the Whitlock steering than I do, with a brake perpendicular to the steering shaft--like was I was used to on my old Edson steering. The brake "spinner" on my steering screws right into the end of the steering shaft. Which is what makes the mechanism a mystery to me.

Meanwhile, Lewmar in the US doesn't seem to know this product and has forwarded the inquiry to the UK. I'd love to hear from anyone who has any info on this system!
