Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical tiller slipping backwards Reply To: tiller slipping backwards


Thanks gentlemen,

The reason I started this was that the tiller (when slipped an inch back or so) rubs the cover of the tank.

This is not a problem if all is correct, but it makes me wonder ->

What would be expected clearance be (when tiller is stopped in correct spot)
between the tiller and the tank. It seems that on my Mk I +S there is very little clearance – could the tiller be bent downwards ?

There looks to be a slight downward curve on the tiller – should there be ?

The rudder is moving freely so I am assuming that the rudder position is correct in the vertical aspect.

Thanks for all the help !
