Have honestly not had the time to get it done but finally got the time and effort going to tackle re-installation of new steering helm and steering cable on de ole 1999 era SouthFork flat!!After getting excellent advice from Larry Boesch and watching nice You Tube,got parts in this past Tues and finally got chance to get parts installed.Was busy on SShore doing repair work on my mom's Kenner rental and had helm installed yesterday(toughest part of job was removal of stubborn steering wheel).Got up this am,made run to hardware store for a few stainless machine screws and nylock nuts to install bezel and with You Tube video and excellent instructions that came with helm and Larry's advice PLUS Wifey pitching in,got job finished and might chase some evasive and non-existent waterfowl this week end.Used to see TONS of scaup and buffleheads on Lake P BUT dey aint dere no mo,just like Schwegmann's and K and B and Ole Pontchy Beach!!!Glad to have ole SouthFork back in de game,just wished ole waterfowl dat USED to be here were still here-yet another bust of a waterfowl season and why should be expect otherwise since last few have been bout de same!!!By the way,steering works effortlessly and used Lock Dry Lube to spray stainless cable where it mates to motor.No grease to gunk up tube and ole 12 gauge shotgun bristle brush plus little penetrating oil(Kroil,awesome stuff)got the tube sparkling clean!!!
