NEXUS paddlewheel and shaft

Anyone know where I can get a replacement paddlewheel and pin for a NEXUS speed transducer? It's the NEXUS Silva line, probably installed around late 1980's in my 1987 O'Day 272.
Model number on the transducer is BAC-012907, and it's labeled NEXUS Log/Temp.
The pin is worn and I really just need that as the wheel binds on it.

I had the same issue on an older paddle wheel. I did what I thought was a temporary repair by getting some small brass pipe from a Hobby store and making a new shaft out of it. It ended up working for the next 3 years till I replaced the system. Still looked fine when I removed it.

If it's the red one like I have I think you can still get them from Nexus (Comnav), I did last year anyway.

Comnav now owns the Nexus brand name and supplies all parts. Some can get pretty spendy!

ComNav does not own Nexus. Nexus is now owend by a company in New Zeland and as of January Ocean Equipment is the North American distributer.

This part is easy to find. You can get it from Pyacht.com, ChicagoMarineElectronics.com, YachtSoft.com and others. These three have taken good care of me with Nexus stuff. Selig at YachtSoft is particulary knowledgeable. If you have no joy with these, contact Ron Miller at Ocean Engineering (rmiller@OceanEngineering.com).

If you need any other nexus info or help, feel free to ask. I have WAY too much time and money invested in Nexus.

BTW, what color is the paddle wheel? be sure to have that info when you go looking for the replacement. Hopefully, its red.

Thanks for the update. I too own quite a bit of NEXUS equipment.
