    I use pd calgo arm for their hydraulic diverter. I was told you just have to drill it out if you want to use a cable.

    Update

    Bought some of the parts I needed from Chris at B1

    Still looking for steering arm for my manual place diverter. Chris told me I could have a piece welded to the arm or call PD.

    Anyone else do this kind of thing here in So Cal area?

    Certainly a handful putting them together again, an extra finger or two could be handy.

    I went ahead and took it apart. Glad I did. The slop was due to the sheath not being secure. Cable in good shape, cut an inch off the sheath on both ends. Cleaned it out and greased everything. Secured the sheath. Now I need to get the pieces that are on the transom side. Mine were toast when I bought it, only 1 survived when I took them off. I see B-1 has them on their website. I used to get stuff from Rex, but the website is a bit off these days.

    calgo repair

    I ordered the stainless cable from farm tech, it was .55 cents a foot. The sheething came from rex or eddy. I think it was 45 bucks for 30'?. As Info said clean grease assemble.
    Be safe, schick

    I'm pretty handy with taking things apart and putting them back together. Is this fairly straight forward to take apart and rebuild? If I could get the rebuild kit I would prefer to go this route

    Yes I did check everything I could, it's in need of a rebuild.
    Norm runs a Promod and a Dragster and is probably out of town racing right now.

    Not local but pretty sure he's the one that originally engineered the calgo design.

    Probably a good place to start your search. He may be able to recommend a local dealer for you.

    Only place I know of. They might be out of town. I would try again next week.

    Have you you checked cable adjustment? Or the nut that holds the steering wheel on. Mine was loose and caused the key way to oblong and cause excessive play.
