It took maybe an hour to pull the worm gear steering out.
If I had found a welder who was not having personal problems, I could have had the tiller parts made in a week or so, as it was, it only cost $350.00 to have beautiful stainless work done.
I still have the worm gear steering and the wheel.
Wish I could send pictures, but I am in Italy for a while, my boat is in Puerto Vallarta, and my PC died.
I do like the tiller far more than the wheel. I also use a Simrad tiller pilot for use while motoring.
