I have just been doing some maintenance on my parker 325 steering gear.

Having removed the rudder stock which is connected to the quadrant with a rod and universal joint, I noticed the UV joint was cracked in such a way that it would cause a critical problem if it failed as I do not currently have an emergency steering option set up

Basically I would like to replace the UV

Does anyone know of a supplier for these universal joints

Boat is due back in the water soon but I cannot do that easily as I cannot get back to my mooring, and would rather fix it out of the water where access is easier

If you have the same set up as the 335, the thing that connects the steering push-rod to the rudder stock is called a rose joint.

If you search for stainless rose joints you will find many suppliers and even more sizes of rose joint.

Good luck

Thanks for the feedback MartinH

I have tracked down some sites selling Rose joints, and even ordered some mistakenly thinking they would be Metric threaded and left handed threads. Unfortunately they were neither.

I am still trying to find out what thread it is, possibly UNF left handed. So waiting for a convenient moment to remove it and send of to supplier and say 'find me one of these'

Once I find out what the correct size is I shall do another post with pictures for more useful feedback for others
