Does anyone know how to remove the rudder cams on the H14. They seem to be completely jammed and i can't remove the the pin.

Drill the pin out and replace them with the rudder cam kit for H14/H16 in the catalog. I think it costs $25 US for both cams and two pairs of binding screws which will make cam removal much easier next time. This is worth every penny of the upgrade.

I agree with hobie nick. This is well worth the upgrade and will take about 45 minutes of work.

You can get the cams to open by using a small flat head screwdriver. Work it between the plunger and cam to force the plunger down. Once the plunger is disengaged, the cam will rotate. Then grease the cam indent and plunger!
