    Default calgo tiller arm ?

    Anybody have a picture of the calgo tiller arm used with a place diverter? I have a tiller arm that is gull shaped and am concerned it won't work with a place diverter type control. I assume there is a clearance issue between the width of the t. arm and the hyd. ram actuator bracket. thx

    Thanks for the pic. 74 Bonneville very helpful. I like those rod ends that the cables attach to, do they come with the tiller arm too from Place or did you source those elsewhere? Nice set up. Looks like I'll be givin Tim a call next week.

    Tiller arm only at Place, you can ask him what else he has. The ends I have came with the boat when I bought it, I did buy some new tie rod ends from McMaster-Carr.

    Curious why I need a stop. My manual handle sets in a notch where I want it at the time. I've read a lot of your posts and respect your opinion. Keep in mind my funds for this are very limited right now. Wife unemployed and kid in college. I buy what I have too, not what I want.

    When the handle is in any notch go to the back of the boat and pull the nozzle up then down and see how much slop there is. That slop is actually a lot when you break it down. Putting a stop on the arm is a good idea and its not expensive. If you have some type of fabrication skills you can build one for under 20 bucks.

    Thanks BC, I hand made my 2 pump braces so I do have some skills. I need a picture. I'll do a little searching and see what I come up with.

    look through this thread. willis posted a pic of his stop. http://www.performanceboats.com/jet-...quirement.html
    I don't know how much power/speed you have in your boat. the thing is, that tiller arm has great horizontal strength. not so great vertical strength, especially that upper p/d tab. for example, -if- you are at wot and the bucket is partially closed, it places a tremendous amount of pressure against the inside/top of the nozzle, which tries to force the nozzle in an upward direction. and that little tab will bend down like a spaghetti noodle, allowing that nozzle to rise to wherever it is physically stopped. if that is too much up angle for the boat to handle, very bad things could possibly happen. a stop, similar to the one in willis' picture, will prevent the nozzle from rising any further than where it is set.
