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...

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
