Steering Wheel Nut

Post by mattman5000e »

Hi Everyone!

I just bought a very clean 1986 Trojan International 8.6 meter, and stumbled upon this place during my obsessive scouring of the internet.

I also got a super cool, very classic stainless and teak 5 spoke wheel that I would like to put on her. Does anyone happen to know the thread pattern of the helm on this boat?

Thanks in advance for your time, and I hope everyone is going to get a little time on the water this weekend.

i have received several compliments on the brand/quality of the factory wheel on my 1983 International.

Unfortunately, I don't recall the "brand" of wheel on her.

The TELEFLEX system I installed in 2006 has the same size shaft/keyway as the factory Hynautic.

Check one out in the box at a chandelry and you will have the size

otherwise, pop the cover off and simply remove the factory nut
