    Exclamation Place Diverter Steering Connection Problem!!!!!!!!!!

    I got my new Place Diverter in today and it's a very nice piece. Unfortunately, like everything else on this boat, it's giving me problems with the simplest of tasks. Here's some pictures, they say more than all my words ever could. This is pulled up as far as it will go. I think something might be wrong. Please help me. I am trying to get the boat in the water this weekend, so I don't have a lot of time to figure this out.







    Thanks in advance!!!

    Adjust your steering tube out more. If it won't go out anymore, turn the tube over and then adjust it that way.
    Also, it looks like your going to need a pivot extention to attach the arm to the cable.

    make sure your steering tube has some play in it, it shouldn't be tight to the transom adapter. that should give your cable enough play to be able to bolt it up no problem.

    the steering tube is the aluminum threaded pipe looking piece that your cable goes through, make sure that it has some movement to itm that should fix your problem. if that doesn't fix it then take the steering tube out of the transom adapter and swap it end for end, this will give you more tube out of the adapter and allow you some more angle.

    Question

    I know what the steering tube is and I think I understand the flipping it around part. But, does anyone have any pictures of how theirs is because I'm a little brain dead without pictures, most of the time. I just don't understand how extending it out further would change the angle. Wouldn't the angle stay the same, but the distance would change. Sorry, if I'm being difficult. I really don't know why, but I have trouble with most components of the steering cable.

    Thanks.

    they're tryin to tell you to leave the tube loose where it passes thru the transom adapter, thataway you can bend it upwards or downwards to get the angle on the arm right the tube should be sealed with rubber, which will still seal just as good at any angle other than straight out.

    Because that answer would more than likely be one sided, and this way I get lots of different opinions and options to try, from multiple people. And I doubt that they would be able to answer me right now, and I'm in a hurry for a solution.

    Looks like the swivel connection kit will solve all your problems.

    Yep, that looks like a winner, but that means I will have to wait until next weekend to get it wet. Takes a week to ship things from Cali to here.
    And I'm too cheap to pay for expedited.

    Thanks.

    Take a photo from the other side. The tube should be adjustable if installed properly.

    HJ,

    If you can't make one of those with all the machines you have at your disposal I am severely disappointed. I would make one with a chunk of aluminum, a sander, and a table saw and drill. Get on it and you won't have to sit on the river bank strokin'

    Good point, I think I'll do that. It's just a little more difficult now that I'm not working at the machine shop anymore. But, I can still go in there whenever I want to, and make whatever I want to. For free. What size bolt and thread pitch is the steering bolt? I need to pick up one of those too.

    Thanks.
