    I believe it remains on the outside with the spring coiled wire that allowed the wheel to turn several revolutions.http://www.rexmar.com/page41.html

    When I did mine on my River Cruiser, I gun drilled the steering shaft and then took a file and notched the hub adapter enough for the wires to pass through, and then down through the shaft. I think that's what you're asking, right?

    Default See the wire?

    Coiled wire set to the diodes. I believe this is not what you want your's to look like. Maybe I'll change mine when you post the pictures of yours. Measure twice, drill once!!!

    correct.... I dont want a coil cord any longer, I was thinking a small hole toward each switch in the hub adapter. but a notch in the center would work fine.

    what size hole did you drill into the helm shaft?

    Had to go find the drill bit, and it was a 5/16" bit. I originally tried to strip the insulation off the coil cord, but there was no getting the coiled wires through there, so I went with regular non-coiled wire through the helm and just crimped them with watertight connectors. Ended up working out well. Wires layed flat behind the wheel, almost to the point of not being noticable. Was night and day from the dangling coil cord flopping around everywhere.

    The one thing that I did notice in your pics is that your helm setup is different. The steering shaft on mine came all the way through the cable section, exiting right about where the screw is on yours. You might want to check with CP and see what will happen once you drill through as that kind of looks like some kind of lateral support to my untrained eyes:

    How about a stick hose calampe to the diverter. No wires no drlling.

    I think the hidden way is a great way to go. the coil wire gets streached out and sloppy.

    OK got it all figured out, gun drill the shaft then add one of these spacers
    which are drilled to route the wires.
    remove the coil cord and use the existing diodes.
