36s 1985 wheel size
« on: 19 March, 2013, 00:41:51 »
For a Contest 36s, 1985. Does anyone know the shaft size holding the wheel, is it metric or standard, straight or tapered? Yes I know, go measure I hear...unfortunately the boat is not accessible at this point. Andrew

Does the boat still has ti's original pedesteal or has it been replaced by some other model?  The original is tapered, metric and measures 25mm if I'm correct.
Lots of info on the Whitlock pedesteals can be found here.

I do know it has the Whitlock rack-and-pinion wheel steering system. I may try to contact Lewmar since they bought out Whitlock. The sizes seem to be either 25 mm or 1 inch, straight or tapered.
