Re Ericson 35 MkII steering pedestal

Just reread your email. That is the same part that we are fixing. The housing that contains the shift and throttle levers. Our problem is that the stainless bolts (about 4 inches long) have corroded in the aluminum housing. We had to saw the two housings apart. There were no plastic parts inside either housing, so we probably do not have the same models. Our solution is to leave the corroded in bolts and put new bolts in a different location after redrilling both housings. Good luck on your problem.
