Rudder shake on Centaur

Post by paulcd »

I am getting a lot of Rudder shake on my Centaur under power, is this worn bushes and if so do I have to drop the rudder to effect repair, also what clearance would I need to do this?

Hi Paul

I couldn't tell you if that's the root cause but it probably wouldn't hurt to drop the rudder and have a look at the bushes. On my centaur (early '71) I needed to dig a hole about 18inches deep to get my stock just clear of the hull. Also the ones Trafalgar supply normally need a little fettling to make fit, mine certainly did.
