Does anyone know if the steering wheel shaft is tapered or straight on an Edson pedestal,1970's Pearson35? I'm sure this pedestal was common to many boats.

I asked a mechanic at our yard about that (because my wheel always loosens....and he said,
“it is a straight shaft, and it will do that”.

So, based on this and all of the other corroboratIng comments, I would say “straight shaft”.
