New steering setup.

Recommended Posts

I was tired of having to force the steering wheel to move and after cleaning the tilt tube I realized my cable was shot.I decided to replace the entire setup instead of just the cable as I wanted to eliminate any future issues.I can tell you the hardest part of the whole ordeal for me was getting the old rack bolts loose from the helm.I removed the old helm wheel and all as a whole unit instead of trying to get it apart while in the boat.I was able to get the steering wheel off with some light pecks with a rubber mallet.The new helm fit almost perfectly in the original hole in the console but I did have to drill some new bolt holes but it was no big deal.Once the helm was bolted up it was all downhill from that point.I now have 1 pinky steering.No photo description available. Image may contain: car

The cable to cable swap isn't to bad I was thinking about going hydraulic but the price was way to inhibiting.

i'm going to go hydraulic, but probably get one already attached to a boat lol

At this point, I’d be happy if it floats. Being boatless really sucks
