    Default Steering Issue

    I can not get the jet to turn all the way left. When i turn to the right it stops because it hits and can not go any further. Left there is still quite of bit of room to go.

    So how do I get the cable to go back further into the boat to get it to turn all the way left. Thanks

    My nozzle has been tapped in that area and I have SS Allen bolts there to keep it from turning to far(like stoppers). My gasket before doing this had blew out. You could adjust your steering tube.

    Your Steering tube (the cable passes thru it and attaches to it) is Threaded and has a large nut on either side with a bushing in the center , make more of that threaded portion inside (less out side ) call if you need clarification Tom

    The steer tube bushing must be "live" and flexible to maintain proper steering

    What do you mean it hits? Is the steering cable bottoming itself out?
