Steering Wheel Adjustment

3 posts in this topic

My steering wheel is not straight when the boat goes straight. It never has been, and I'd like to fix it. I took of the nut that is on the front of the wheel, but it didn't seem to want to budge. Do I need a gear puller of some sorts? Is there a specific "steering wheel" puller?

If I do get it off, can I just put it on straight, or are they harder than that to adjust? Is there a way to straighten out without removing it, like adjust the cable?

My boat only has one cable.

Yes you need a steering wheel puller, they don't come off easy (thank godness) we are not NASCAR pilots.... grin.gif

Anyway when you pull it out there should be 3 groves inside wheel hole, you can choose which one to line up with key on helm shaft.

Sometimes there are three grooves, sometimes there are three bolts that bolt the steering wheel to the hub.. if you're lucky and have the 3 bolt version there's no need to pull the steering wheel off...

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
