I have a new Teleflex rack and cable in our project and am surprised at the amount of slack in the pinion portion. It's not side to side but forward and backward. Sitting in the seat you can push or pull the steering wheel forward and backwards over an 1/8".
It doesn't sound like much but it surprised us a bit when it happened while we were running the boat for the first time. Our previous boats there was never this much slack.

What is the slop (forward and backwards) that you guys are seeing in your racks? Anybody know if there any way you can tighten these?

Thanks.........john

Morning John watched the video you sent and it doesn't seem normal (end play looks excessive) , We'll send a replacement Monday and you can send that one back to return to Tflex ...
