Rated 4 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quality Product This is a nice and easy install. I've had one before and it lasted for years. The product itself is awesome. I am, however, disappointed at the price. I find that it's about 50 dollars overpriced. I can buy elsewhere and even here in Canada for about 140 dollars. April 6, 2014

I don't believe so...I'm pretty certain that motors over 100hp need to have a dual cable system. You may want to look at the Teleflex website to confirm that.

A: 
You need a long drift punch and a hammer. You just pound it out of there.

You can try penetrating oil... you probably want to cut the cable off the part that is in the tilt tube, and you then can try punching it out that way, instead.

But it's really just well placed blows with the hammer.

A: 
chances are, no. Most all boats have a little tab or rutter just behind and above the prop. you just loosen this tab and move it to adjust how the boat steering works. If the boat is pulling to the right then point the front of the tab to the left a little more. It may take some trial and error to get it just right. If there is no tab but there is a hole it may have come loose and fallen off. If so check with your local dealer or just look at another motor like yours and see what they look like and then buy one like it.

A: 
Rack and Pinion steering is superior, just like in cars. The Rack and pinion is a gear and track. This makes for smother and more controlled steering and, holds course better. Rotary is all up to you with no gear assist.
R&P is harder to install, but not difficult if that is what you are replacing. It takes more room for the gear (rack) - about 1.5 feet laterally behind your dash.
Rotary also get's worn quicker as dirt, debris slowly grind down unit more - not with rack.

A: 
This is really just a matter of opinion but there is some cons and pros about both of them. Rack and pinion will last longer but the cables sometimes want to stick or be hard to deal with over a long period of time. The rotary system is a little better in my opinion because the cables dont stick as bad as the cables do and not as much of a fight to steer your vessel although the rotary cables tend to not last as long as the rack and pinion. Hope this helps. Hydrolic is the best by far but expensive.

A: 
The best ting to do would be to look on the cable in the boat and see how long it is usually the cables are measured in inches. it would be hard to guess how long of a cable u would need, and a lot easier to get the right cable first time.
