Designed to increase efficiency and sensitivity of a Pull-Pull Conduit System. Engineered with 6" sheaves and three holes to accept Edson's Conduit End Fittings, the idler makes wire alignment with the sheave automatic.
It is recommended that these idlers be used at major load points in engine compartments to allow the steering cable to run over a sheave when being routed aft. Required on center cockpit pull-pull systems over 39'(12m).
Conduit should have no 90 degree bends on boats over 30', as it will make steering stiff
Use Edson Conduit Idlers whenever possible when conduit needs to make a turn
Conduit should be utilized only to make slight elevation changes and gentle bends
Conduit greasers should be used on all runs over 6'(2m)
