I think it looks good from over here.

Not sure what you have in your arsenal Charlie. But I think Dremel tool polishing kit would help you out

Ok here an update I know it's far from perfect but it's not the easiest thing to sand either so here's what I got
It would have been way better if I could have taken it apart
And one more

Thanks marc I will give it a shot if I can ever figure out if there is a pin in there or not if all else fails I will do the best I can polishing it as one piece but I could do a much better job on it if I could take it apart but I know it's not the end of the world if I can't get it apart it will look ok either way

Charlie this stuff works well on nuts,bolts, and pins. I use it on areas that I know will give me problems.

John is it just a roll pin holding the hub in place there is a hole going through the hub on both sides of the hub the way it looks to me is the holes line up so I'm thinking there is a hole in the shaft for the roll pin to pass through the only thing that makes me think it's not a roll pin is that I can't see through to the other side of the hub you know how you can see through the center of a roll pin I don't think it's set screws holding it on because the holes in the hub are not threaded

You're doing great Charlie.

No way you are going to accidentally extract that hub from the plastic part of the steering wheel, I've had "the pleasure" of separating two of those and you have to basically destroy the whole center section of the steering wheel to remove that hub.

If there ever was something related to pleasure boating that was overbuilt..... it is those steering wheels.

Marc it's just cool to be able to save something anything from the scrap yard my work is nowhere near as good as yours but one day when I grow up lol I may try to rebuild /restore an outboard but I know me that would open a whole new can of worms because stuff like this is like trying to eat just one chip before you know it you have eat the whole bag
