Anyone have a suggestion or pattern for a steering bracket?

We are going to do the breaking in on Serenity. Got the old 64 Evinrude off and the new Zuke mounted today. All I need now is an extended steering bracket to clear the cable steering.

You should go back with 3/16 rivets even if it originally had 5/32 in it, so buy a rivet set for 3/16 modified braizer head rivets and buy that same 3/16 diameter rivet with modified braizer head.

 Trey,

The kit you showed will work, you might want to look at this kit from Aircraft Spruce, it has more bucking bars and you will find you need an assortment or them. You will also need a rivet set for a Modified Brazer head rivet.
I also don’t understand it but both these kits have a air flow control valve but you really need to be able to turn the pressure down with a easy to reach pressure relief valve, I usually use about 60 to 80 pounds depending on what I’m riveting.

Ray, What sized rivet set for a Modified Brazier head? Or does it depend on the rivets?

You don’t need much flow. You’re only using very short burst of air.
