By setting it up in the cockpit, I have discovered that I do not have the center of travel between the limit switches anywhere near where the wheel is amidships... With the wheel centered, it is a turn and a half going in one direction till the limit switch stops the motion, but only a half a turn in the other direction.
I've got to figure out how to recenter things. Well, I guess that is a full-blown philosophical question...
Got it. Here's what I did:
- Run the autopilot until the limit switch tripped on the side with only 1/2 turn away from center. Turn off the autopilot.
- Go down below and loosen the drive unit until I could move it far enough to disengage the chain
- Back in the cockpit, turn the wheel another 1/2 turn
- Re-position the drive unit and engage the chain. Tighten in place.
But I'm still working on centering myself.
