Re: Retrofitting Tiller to Wheel Steering

get a bushing made! The quadrant or wheel that mounts on the R shaft will also be at that same angle so you will need 2 more idlers to change the direction to horizontal.

Or is the rudder from the donor boat available? use that and remake your rudder tubes and make it vertical?

This may work better then the wheel


The wheels come with different offsets too.


But I know cost is most likely a big issue.
