Hypr Rudder bar/block

Aloha, trying tohelp out a buddy with a Hypr Holo Nui OC-1

the aluminum block which the steering cables lock into has stripped, leaving the rudder secure, but spinning.

Does anyone have one? willing to buy and pay shipping, etc.

no response to email request from mfg.

Roscoe, i take it you mean the tiller bar. The rudder shaft will be stainless and sounds like the tiller bar is Aluminium flat bar.

If you or you know someone handy with a hacksaw, drill and file, you can make a new tiller bar from flat Aluminium stock. The stripped part will be a hole with a flat edge on one side.

You could possibly repair it with a weld to build up the stripped edge then file it to fit where it seats on the rudder shaft.

Not a flat bar like other manufacturers do or make as it looks just as stated, a wierd shaped aluminum (molded) block.

Might want to use a stainless steel flat bar instead since the original was aluminum and failed.

Openocean,

As per email, have not seen one in a while but If I remember right, you might just be able to go up one size on the tap ?

While its off, back it up a bit to check those cables right there on the 'corners' as well just for the heck of.

aloha,
pog

Looks like Mr Foo over engineered it and flunked out.

Simple things work best and are more reliable.
