View Full Version : Problem with the rudder port Lsv 2006

Hi all,

My name is Antonio Rosales and I am writing from Badajoz, Spain.

Since seven year ago I am owner a Moomba Lsv mod. 2006 , I am very happy with it because I have not had any serious problem but It is true that since I bought it , Its steering was not as soft as other Moomba that I have used, but I didn not worry me about it . Nowadays it is different because the wheel is very,very hard . For repair this problem , first I thought about the cable, after I revised the teleflex Morse but in the end, I unscrew all components and I discovered that the rudder was the problem . Quickly I tried greased this part but It is imposible for this kind of rudder port.
I have spent hours searching on the net but I did not find anything. Please, what can I do ? I have to buy a new rudder port or maybe exist a kit to repair the mine ? Where can I buy it ? In Spain Is very difficult because the dealer practically do not exist . I am desperate, I hope you will can help me .

Thanks for all.

P.D. I attach, four pictures of my rudder port, maybe, you give me other advice or other solution.

Odd that it doesn't have a grease fitting. You could have a local machine shop drill and tap for a zerk fitting.
