Center board jams..Help
At the time, I purchased the pin from an ex-employee selling new and used O''Day spare parts. The pin is made from this "sacrificial" type material so the board is not damaged, I would not suggest that SS be used. I would disassemble the centerboard and measure the pin and check the internet to find a supplier of plastics. You might try a Berry Bearing (an industrial supplier) or WW Grainger. Rots of Ruck.
