Let me see if I can find them. Not even sure I still have them. Won't be straight away but I'll get back to you asap.

Geddes,
I'll answer your PM later on but in short the only part of mine that is seemingly unserviceable or at least in some way faulty is the compass. I did have some trouble with belt slipping but after cleaning up and servicing the wheel attachment itself it seemed to be OK the last time I used it. Unfortunately the fluxgate went insane about that time and I've not had it operating since. I have spare belts.

Pedestal mount

Hello Trevor-
I tried sending a PM, but don't have required 15 posts yet.
Would you mind sending a picture of your pedestal mount? Thank you

TrevorT I have a wp5000 and the mounting is quite simple. It should be easy to make one depending on where you want to mount it: pedestal or or side or floor. You can download the manual from here Downloads for WP5000 Wheelpilot | Simrad Yachting let me know if you want photos of my pedestal installation

Will it work with the TP series? All you would need to mount mine is the pipe mit the holes to set the pin on the tiller in. All else fails we can make a copy of mine, a drilled piece of pvc pipe would do in a pinch. When you get back to Sneaky Lake, give me a shout and we can get together and solve this problem. I am in Orchard Park and sail out of Niagara on the Lake.
Do you need a manual ?

tdw I do in fact have a WP5000, fully intact but with a problematic fluxgate.

The bad news is that its in Australia.

If you don't sort this out in a reasonable time let me know.
