While replacing the steering cable I noticed a crack across the web on both sides of the quadrant. They may have always been there, but I felt that I should fix this before it ever becomes a problem.
This shows the quadrant after the repair/improvement was made. I used bronze bar approx. 1 1/4" x 3/8" then cut to length and shaped to fit the web on the quadrant casting. Then JB weld was used along with two 1/4" bolts on each side to secure.
