lower helm removal 1985 39'

Postby hoohaah » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:07 pm

I would like to remove the lower helm steering hub & cannot figure out how to remove the wood panel its attached too? There must be hidden fasteners I cannot find. I removed the pannal in the cupboard above the sink I can see the hub of the helm but not any fasteners? Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for looking

Need some pictures. On the 32' you take off the wheel. Unscrew 4 big bolts, take off the big ring washer and push the hydraulic pump unit out the back. Do not take off any hoses.

We removed the spice rack that is below the upper cabinet to gain access. There is a set screw in the bottom of our hub. If you loosen it you can pull the shaft with the drum out the back.
