Joel,


There is a ring there, yes.  Does it come out without disassembling the whole assembly?  Where did you find a new one?

Jim,



If you have a delrin ring above deck it may be worn/the source of the squeak.  I replaced the one on my 35/3 last year.You could try smoothing it off with some 800 grit sandpaper.

OK thanks.  It made some difference for me at the time as well.  I was not even looking for a grease fitting back there until one of the other 30-2 owners on this list made me aware of it.

Yes, the lower tube. Not only got rid of the squeak for me ,  but freed up the steering so driving became a real pleasure.

Hi Andy,




Thanks for the reply.  Are you talking about the lower tube where the post goes into the glass tube and ultimately out the bottom, or the top of the tube where it meets the cockpit floor?.  I put quite a bit of grease in the lower fitting last year in a futile attempt to get rid of the squeak.  The only thing that seems to help is getting some lube on the emergency tiller bracket in my case.

My 40 and the 41 I'm delivering south from St John, NB at the moment both have grease fitting on the tube. These are packed with grease and you give them a turn every now and then to lube the tube. Mine hadn't been done for quite some time so it needed to be repacked twice before I was confident there was enough grease in there. That eliminated the squeak for me.

Jim,  I do have a cover at my emergency tiller stock, but it doesn't keep the water out. I have not experienced the squeak at the stock so can't offer advice there. Is it possible to use something a bit heavier than McLube, but lighter than standard grease. Triflow or similar?

Hello All,

 

I have a persistent squeak when I turn the wheel on my 30-2.  I have traced it to the emergency tiller bracket in the back of the cockpit.    I can spray McLube in there and it will go away for a short time, but always comes back, especially after a rain.   Was there originally a cover on the bracket, BTW?

 

I don’t see a grease fitting like the lower part of the shaft has, or another way to get a better lubricant in there.  

 

Anyone had this issue before?  I am reluctant to remove the bracket for fear of causing larger issues with the steering system, so reassurance there would also be helpful.

 

Thanks,
