You own a Lewmar Folding Wheel

I am stuck. I have been doing a lot of work on a Morgan 382 trying to bring her back to life. This included a new steering system which left me with a 40" Lewmar Folding Wheel that's basically worthless to the boat. The binnacle I installed has a tapered shaft and the wheel has the straight shaft.
Do you have the tapered hub laying around? They ship with both, and your boat only needed the straight hub. I am in the bay area but happy to purchase this from you.

Have you tried calling Lewmar about the part? Should not be that expensive...

I have a new Lewmar 8 spoke 40" NON-folding leather wrapped wheel with a tapered hub - trade? (I want to use it on an Edson shaft)

One thing to consider - at least on my wheel, the spokes are tack welded to the back 1/2 of the hub. Is this not the case with the folders? They are just little dots of weld so would be easy enough to cut I suppose.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Thanks. Yes i did call them. After several calls, matter of fact, they do not have the part. They only ship them complete with both hubs.

I may want to do a trade if i cant find the hub.

Hschultz, I am trying to PM but there is a minimum number of posts i must complete.

This has been resolved. I was contacted by a local who had the part.

Re: You own a Lewmar Folding Wheel

Do you still have the straight hub? I just bought a 32" wheel at a scratch and dent sale. It only has the tapered hub. Are you interested in a trade/sale? I'm in Miami, FL, so we'd have to work out shipping.
