It'll fit. It'll just take a while.

The other option is to buy a new tilt tube.

Matt,

Thats the same setup as my old boat. I'll have a look tonight for some pictures, I'm on another PC at the moment. What we are looking for is a bracket that holds the steering linkage away from the transom and he should just need a nut and bolt to hold the linkage on to the engine.
I've had a search on Google for the item but no luck yet.

NR.

If it's the type that bolts to the transom and clamps around a split nylon ball that clamps around the end of the outer of the steering cable (!),I have one of those you are more than welcome to have.Give me a shout on 07767 702104.

Hi,
thanks DavyBuoy sounds very much what i need, so it's just a clamp to the transform & a pivot arm, sound's a lot easier then trying to get it through the tilt pivot tube..............i'm just waiting for a marine shop to come back to me as i've been on the hunt, but more than likely if you don't mind i'll give you call over the weekend, i'm in Sevenoaks kent by the way..............

Thanks everyone for the advice very helpful, Excellent Forum..........

Jeff.....................

I don't think it was homemade. Just very difficult to find. Might be worth driving round a few outboard dealers or small boat outfitters. Maybe something will come up on here in a couple of days.
