Recommended Posts

Anyone replaced or repacked a 1992 Flightcraft Sportster Rudder?

Is there an article with pictures or a parts list available.

Thanks in advance

Just curious could you please describe what the rudder is doing - what you are feeling or seeing?

The Marine Hardware and Elberts websites have some great diagrams for running gear. I have improved the rudder looseness by ading a shim washer between the tiller arm and bushing housing. Might also move it away from the area of significant wear.

Thanks. Pulled it apart and then decided to call your leads, and just ordered an ENTIRE new rudder and box assembly
