Hello, I tried to locate the name of the wheel but there is no reference. On the survey they simply make reference to the rudder is aided by a rack and pignion mechanism and the shaft to to the rudder runs through a fiberglass tube. Everyone makes reference to having stoppers but I have no idea where this would be located. I have added again a picture of the gear system as well as a top view of the upper mechanism with gears, which are apparently in need of some grease. hopefully this may help someone to point me in the right direction,

Thanks again,

Gary
