Edson experts Please help!

Hi everyone..yes I've not posted in a long time.. but I"m still alive and well!
Anyway.. we are pulling the shaft out of my boat. need to drop the rudder, the Edson quadrant (big "pulley" thingy ) that holds the cables and is bolted on and through the rudder post seems to be the only thing holding my rudder post up in the boat. Anyway, this is the prob.. the through bolt in the hub of quadrant is going to have to be broken it seems. (stainless bolt in alum hub. will the quadrant still come apart with the through bolt broken off? The quadrant was made in 2 halves and it looks like it will. What say the experts? (expert = person thats been there done that?)
thanks all!

Denise..

There are more than just that one bolt to break the quadrant in half... Remember to use TefGel when putting it back together...

If you don't have TefGel, use Lanocote. Lacking either, go to the pharmacy and get Anhydrous Lanolin and use that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks guys.. all the bolts came apart except the one that goes through the hub and the post. may try heating it this morning. or just break it and drill it out the hub later. anyone have a lead on contorsionists.com? LOL!

OK to put this one to rest! Rudder was out, the quadrant came apart just like it should the through hub bolt did not break. The New cutlass bearing is in the shaft is back in too. The rudder is back in the boat too! Just need to put it all back together, and install the PSS seal when it comes in a few days! I must say, this one was no where near as difficult as it seemed before I even tried. thanks all!

LOL... Denise... you were probably making it tougher on yourself than it had to be. Done that a bunch of times myself, thinking that I had to be doing something wrong, cause it couldn't possibly be this simple.
