Has anyone removed the pedestal looking at the underside I think is unlikely it will come off and go back on without also removing the plate it is fitted on as one of the bolts is vey difficult to get at. Does anyone have any ideas on the best way to release the plate as it appears to be glued on.

I have now carried out the mod to the steering stops by unbolting the floor pedestal and steering rod. I do not have teak flooring and I managed to get a small bottle jack under the rear of the floor to put a little pressure on whilst cutting through the sealant with a sharpened filler knife. The grp floor section is bonded to the aluminium plate . I then drilled through the original holes for the stops reamed out the grp and put the bolts in from above then fitted the stops back on with nuts and washers. The stops are now secure and fitted as I gather they should have been and the base of the pedestal covers the bolts completely, also hex bolts are below the surface of the grp.
All in all the job was easier than I expected.

Well done Gordon and thanks for the info. Have you still got 'O' rings around the stops?
