Question Pearson 34.... Shift cable.....

The shift cable is "frozen" ... started to take it out...easy, right? Looks like a bolt about halfway down the helm steering tube is used to stabilize the cable...very hard to see down inside the tube...imagine there is a "nut" on the inside of the, if I were to take it off it would be extremely difficult to put back on...although, leaving it this way is definitely useless...

Anyone know of a cure??????

Tartan34C will become famous soon enough
Its not a nut. It is a split piece that holds the shift and throttle cable. Remove the screw on the aft face of the pedestal and pull the assembly up to loosen the bolts holding the cables. To reattach it move the part around by holding the end of the cable to position the piece so you can replace the machine screw after you replace the cable. Make sure each cable is on the correct side when you put everything back together.
All the best,

Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.

Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.

Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat

Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.

Thanks, Robert....

I was able to look at the mechanism was difficult in daylight to see down in there...even with a big light.

Your, absolutely right. both cables are held in by a cotter pin...inside the fitting just runs along the back side....

Thanks very much for your help! My concern was that there was a nut on the inside too...but, that wouldn't make much the nut is on the outside... duh...sometimes it takes a while to sink in this old head..!
