Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Penta Steering Acutator Removal Question.

    There are two large bolts that had cotter pins. I removed them as did I the other two in the end by the link. These things don't move at al. No rust or anything, the damn bolts don't turn no matter what. Anyone have that issue?

    post up a picture, hard for me to figure which bolts you are talking about.

        I had to do the same thing a few months ago. They will turn. I got mine of with a standard ratchet. Maybe they put locktite on them. If you have a rattle gun that might break them loose. I had the hardest time with the ones you already got out. I know their in a tight location but maybe a box wrench and a hammer might break them loose. Once loosened, they came out by hand. As a side note ,when you reassemble the unit I put the pin that holds the shaft on before installing, as it was hard to get to when in place. On the pin that swings the drive I used a spring pin like one on a trailer hitch pin. This was much easier for me rather than the cotter pin, as I could slide it right in. Also I cleaned all the pins with fine Emory cloth, and lightly greased them. Dave-R

          My threads appeared to have loctite. Try some heat.
