    Default calgo continued...

    ok, got the unit from the guy... i'm thinking i have to send it in for a rebuild. There's a long bolt in the back of it, i'm guessing this is the set screw. I'm able to screw it in and out by hand. I did not pull it all the way out, only maybe turned it 1/2 turn each direction but my guess is that i shouldnt be able to do this. So here's what i got...









    So, i need the bezel, the tiller arm for my place diverter... i'm also running a droop so do i need anything for that? What else?

    Call Brian @ CP Performance. He was very helpful when I was looking for Calgo /place parts.

    They're below in the $$$ section.

    I've heard Rex knows a lot about these Calgo setups, and also sells replacement parts for them.

    Good luck.

    that long bolt should stay in there to keep you from turning the shaft during installation. If you turn the shaft/or steering wheel when its on the shaft, and the cables aren't hooked up to the tiller arm, the cables will come loose inside the steering box.

    never turn the turn with the wheel without tension on the cables.

    once its all set up you can take that bolt out.

    arnt these units pre-loaded? I though removing that nut let them pull the slack out the line and keep the system tight?

    Cyclones right if its been turned without tension it will likely unspool inside

    Its also there as a centering up tool. What you do is run that screw in till it bottoms out, its centers up the gearbox and also keeps it from turning so the cables dont get crossed up inside during installation or during hardware changes when the cables are off. In most cases you pull the screw out and install a zerk, I leave the screw in but backed out.

    Thats a different box than what they sell now, Id send it to Grimes and have it gone through and get some information on what youve got. It probably has a different ratio than what is offered now.

    Do a search for Goleta Speed Marine (Norm Grimes)

    hey Shaun, Check with Greg Shoemaker at GS marine in corona ca. I have played with calgo on the old race boats and the spool has a lock bolt in the back so when you unbolt the cables everything doesn't turn into a rats nest in the spool. Again I would check with Greg, He's a good guy and willing to help. Go to his thread. M
