Does this outboard have a tilt tube?

Honda 1997(?) BF15 LHU manual start, manual tilt.

Does it have a tilt tube so I am able to use cable steering?

Can't tell form the angle of that photo. Will try to describe.....

When you tilt it, there will be a tube tht the whole engine swivels on. If it pokes out each side of the two clamps that fix it to the transom, and is threaded on both ends, the answer is yes.

If no, I'm no Honda expert, but you may find that there is a replacelment "tilt tube" that will take a steering cable that replaces a neater (i.e doesnlt stick out either end) one for the manual control ones.

Oh, and welcome to Ribnet by the way!
