Boats being sold

 Surveyor found loose steering at the rudder arm. Pulled the arm and rudder this afternoon. 

Found the wobbled out hole. 

Milled hole offset with 7/8 end mill.

Grabbed an old brass pump shaft. Cut it down on the lathe. Close to. 005 press fit. Little heat and the arbor press and got the shaft into the hole. Cut off the shaft and smoothed it put flush.

Set up end mill again with a 1/2 bit. 

Cut new hole just off the edge of the original and it's good to go. Getting installed back into the boat now. 

Photo order all messed up but ya get the visual.

Good job!

Is there a reason for drilling the new hole off center?

We kissed the edge of where the original hole was. Which was center. The hole had worn to the one side. So we cut/drilled from that original edge center to the worn edge. Then plugged it. Luckily the largest end mill we currently have is 7/8. 

Just made it.

That problem is more common that you might suspect.

I designed a fix for worn carb linkage with the same worn pieces. (Much smaller of course)

Five million old VW bugs with a stumble, need a fix like that one on the accelerator PUMP linkage.

PM me for details. ( :lmao:  )

That sumbitch was worn out. Nice repair.
