We have received some reports of steering drum screws coming loose. We have been using an allen head screw that is pre-treated with a Loctite strip along the threads. This has not been holding. We are changing back to a Phillips head screw and adding a drop of Blue Loctite to hold.

I highly advise checking this connection on your boat.

Seems I don't need to worry. Why would a screw design superseded this lock pin design?

The screw is much easier to install than the roll pin :wink:
