OK, So I have an 05 launch 21 v. The other day I was driving a friends 09 20ssv and his steering is much much looser than mine.
I started looking up what the problems could be, I greased the rudder. The grease came out of the rudder assembly underneath the hull from a small hole. Does this mean my o ring is gone?
I also read that these cables can get moisture inside and corrode and I am wondering if this is the case with mine, I have had the boat for 2.5 seasons now and I doubt it has ever been replaced before I bought it. The steering wheel has a small amount of play back and forth before it engages the cable. Its really quite stiff, I have to use two hands to turn the wheel 180. With my friends boat I was able to "throw" the steering wheel one direction and the wheel would spin freely for abit. I would like to have my steering this smooth.
So has anyone replaced theirs? How much did it cost? I am some what handy with these things but would probably opt to have a professional replace it for me, anyone know how much that would cost? and should I go with another teleflex cable or a morse cable?
Thanks for your time!
