Miracle 20 tiller connector - having problem...  Bottom

Go to page [-1] 1 - 2:

  • Didn't get out to it this weekend (Mother's day priorities), but Matt Miller indicated that Hobie Europe used to "freeze" the swivel/non-adjusting end of the cross-bar comnnector by extending the rivets through them - or something like that. I can attest that a simple addition of teflon tape to the threads of the toe-in adjuster and leaving the swivel end free worked magic so far. I think the least intrusive option is to find or machine a nylon jam nut for the threaded side. Guess I'll need to make another large tap out of a bolt..

  • The non-adjusting end of the tiller crossbar should already be fixed. It is solid piece of plastic.

    You would need to stop the rotation of the fitting in the end of the tiller arm (the part with the stainless stud that the tiller crossbar drops onto). To stop that fitting from rotating, all you should need to do is remove it from the tiller arm (will need to drill out rivets) and then tighten the bolt that holds it together so it binds up the fitting and stops rotating. A little loctite should keep it tight.

  • It's not the tiller arm that's rotating; that's fine. It's the crossbar that's rotating. The non-adjustable side of the cross bar on the one I have is a swivel, designed to rotate. Looks like what's in the factory manual and I THOUGHT it was anodized aluminum. Maybe not stock?
