I picked up a used 2015 PA 14. It was a little rough around the edges but it was pretty cheap.

So the problem is, the rudder drops but i kinda have to feed the line into the kayak. To pull the rudder up, theres at least a foot of line that i pull before the rudder responds. So i took the foam out to see what was going on. I pulled all the slack out of line (rudder is down and the rudder pull line is tight to the grommet). Theres lots of slack in the line and a pulley with the rope attached just laying there at the front square hatch.

My question is, ive seen the steering diagram. Ive seen the lines diagram. Is there a more detailed diagram of how the lines and pulleys of the rudder up/down system should look like?

Both pictures were taken from the square tackle hatch in front of the seat. I looks like the pulley should be tied on to something or screwed in somewhere.

The block attaches forward to another line that dead-ends to the front hatch - there's a fitting that it's tied to. You'll just need to re-attach with a piece of line.

I don't have a drawing, but the fitting is under the lip inside the forward hatch.
