Yeah, I see the other EH now.

On further investigation, I found over a quarter of a million EH's were built from 1963 - 1965.

In 1964 my Dad had an EH Station Wagon 179ci with three on the tree, as a Company Car. Dad travelled over 100,000 miles in that car before the first set of spark plugs were changed. His second Company Car was a HK Station Wagon 161ci with three on the tree. I was driving his HK around the local streets when I was only 12 years of age. Dads third Company Car was a HQ Kingswood Station Wagon 202ci with traumatic transmission. Arr... those were the days.

Thanks Mercman (again)!
Pop and his sons fixed up a bunch of EH's in the day. If you look closely there is one behind the boat in bits.
Wife almost got an EH ute for her first car. Ow how I wish…….

No expert on steering  A but the systems you referred to are the same . Depends on choice .

I installed the Multiflex in place of the 55 year old pulley system and what a difference. It doesn't come with a steering wheel (thank goodness).
You should be able to use the same wheel .
The important thing is cable length (see instructions)  as it comes in fixed lengths .

Still don't know what you current system is so as Mercman says you may only need new cable .

Send pics we love photos  Wink Smiley

As to House Paint . Gee you take me back a few years  Grin

Thanks, never seen one in Whitworth's, but I suppose I haven't been looking for one - just need to pull the old one out. Next weekend.....

Will also check throttle cable and let you know.

Water based paint only dissolves if it's not dry!! Houses are painted with it! Probably about time I gave the old girl a spruce up though, esp seeing how immaculate Neil's SX2 is.

Another Question!
Any idea of the year the boat is?
I arrived on on my wife's family scene around 1980 and they already had the boat then bought second hand.
It never had a windscreen or drivers seat. I think this photo I just found must be when he first got it.

Whitworths appear to have the same item. At least with Whitworths, you can take your entire assembly to them and they will determine if you actually need to purchase a full kit, or just a new cable itself. https://www.whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?item=82356&search123=steering+&intAbsolutePage=1

Pretty much all steering wheels will fit the morse taper & key way on.

As for your throttle cable.. as with Merc and OMC, Throttle and Shift Cables are the same, but not between brands, nor electric shift, of course!
I have a reasonable selection of Merc and OMC Control Cables in stock. Let me know the length you are chasing and I'll check at this end for you.

I'd be using a water based paint. After all, you boat will be in the water. OMG.
