Willard 730 IO Build

We just got 2 Willards in and are going to be keeping them as IO's. Not sure what our first step will be but thought we would start a thread and see how this goes.

Very cool Ryan - please post a photo of the linkage that connects the steering ram to the outdrive yoke...if it's the old drop link, that crap needs to get replaced immediately...

I replaced mine, required a new plate from Konrad with new geometry and then you simply use the standard link that comes with the K6 cylinder.

How are the tubes you have? I'm in the market for something better than what I got.

Yeah, that's the problematic drop link system which twists as it works back and forth leading to locked up steering and broken ball joints...a real pain in the butt system...

Contact Konrad, they have a replacement inner transom bracket and parts that will make it an inline steering system;

The shot above is the first Willard I've seen with a lift muffler. I did the same steering upgrade but my cylinder is mounted on top.

I also added power steering for my 560 twin prop. Very nice.
