I just installed two new cables on my SmartTrack rudder. At the toe control there are 2 "toe pilot springs" on each side. I replaced the springs on one side, but during my first paddle with the new installation both these popped out after about an hour of paddling. The rudder seemed to work fine without these springs.
Does anyone know what these springs are for, or why they would pop out? Jackl?
I plan to call QCC tomorrow.

how I understood it, and how I think I installed it. I guess I will have to remove the front assembly again and try another time. I should have just left the original springs in place.
I feel for you !|

I made the mistake of taking them out once also.

Maybe if you gave me the proper cuss words to use during the installation it would be easier.
Man, is that brand new ?|

It sure isn't any like I have worked on.
