Cool steering box

Post by Mark Gregush » Thu Oct 03, 2019 6:54 pm

This is ether going on my 21 or? Anyone know what it was off of? Yes it has a Model T spider on it. The lower bracket is adjustable so you can set the box and column at most any angel. The bearing surfaces are a bit worn but the teeth look good. It is a cross swing. The ball needs some loving but looks to be the same size as T.

Mark I have seen a few in vintage wooden boats. Now is it for that purpose, no real clue. They used two bell-cranks in the system to connect to the rudder. ??

Hope this Helps,

Hank

Thanks for what it fits. The rust worms got to the outside of the shaft some, but being solid don't think will hurt it much. I will have to shorten it about 9-10 inches and will use the T mast jacket and rods.
