I agree with the heat, blow torch is good.
Once you get it out, its pretty likely that the tilt tube is bent. If the teleflex part doesnt run freely through when greased, you need the new tube to make your days on the water less of a drag.

I'd just buy a new tilt tube seeing as you've managed to remove the old one. It'll make it a far easier job and you're less likely to burn yourself or hit your fingers.

It'll be a shed load easier to fit a new steering cable to a new tilt tube as well .You won't be trying to get it in through a load of rust.

thanks all for your replies, I'm managed to get it a bit further out - gave it some almighty wallops - heat, cool down (thanks simon) - getting a bigger hammer (sledge) - its that doesnt do it then I'm getting a price from fairweatherine marine for a new one, I've cut myself, weakened my wrist (no JOKES! ) by hammering the sh*t out of it, I think my prides got in the way a bit, so NEARLY THERE!!!
