Pull-Pull Drive Unit for PDQ 36ft. Catamaran Classic

Hello All,

I'm having some trouble finding the pull-pull drive unit for the steering mechanism in my PDQ 36 Classic (1994). This part is where the cable conduits come in and attach allowing the cables to then travel onto the Quadrant which will drive the tillerbar. I've found an image of it in Charles Doane's "The Modern Cruising Sailboast" but can't seem to find the part. Here is a link to see for yourself. It's page 185. I can't not currently post any websites just yet. If you search Charles Doane "The Modern Cruising Sailboat" and pull-pull drive unit, you will get the link to see the image.



On sailnet.com I've found a part that is similar to what I need however my cables come in on the same side. It is called the edson reverse sheeve/conduit bracket. On this piece the cables come in on both sides. Does anyone have anything that might help find the piece I'm looking for?

Anything will help. Thanks a lot!!

Michael
