Tohatsu Steering arm....


Just got myself a used tohatsu 90hp tldi from 2006-2007 ( built 2006 but bought in 2007) and have everything here but what I think is strange that the steering link arm has a serious bend in it.
Can somebody tell me if this is like it should be or if it got bent somewhere down the line and that I should bend it straight again.

Looks about right to me.

Most steering drag links have a kink in them, its because the end of the arm on the engine sticks out further than the centre of the tilt tube that the steering cable passes through.
