Better find yourself a needle-bearing that has needles the same size as the break-pin :-)

And make the square on the cable VERY light-going into the joint.

All is repairable easely , but IMHO it's not a "fool-proof" concept.

 So what your basically saying Hendrix, go with the WD-200 drives for the longevity if you can afford it ?

Hi if I were you I would forget trying to put any kind of steerable drive on a 39'' boat they are to big, i have a pair of WD200 drives on my 58'' apache ( see my pic ) drive is 6'' in length from Transom to drive dog, and you will need a lot of servo power ( more expense ).

Bob.
Wow i did not know that they where that long [] I guess I am going to just put a AMPS z drive on her . I still wish some one made a smaller drive [&:]
