How Tight Should Tiller Steering Be?
Hope its not a silly question, but how tight should you make the steering on a mariner 30hp 2 stroke 05 outboard? Can you damage by having too tight?
Having just bought an aux which came with a manual, I realised you could tighten it up. I've had it 5 years and didn't realise, I know, really stupid, and I'm not blonde.
Having had friends try and drive my quicksilver 430hd with a tiller steer, they've scared me to death and lucky not to flip it because it torque steered a lot and was quite a handful. One lady just let go and screamed!
So last wknd I tweaked it with a spanner and its soo much easier. But how tight should it be? I assume so its not too heavy to steer and when you let go it won't jam into full lock?
Just thought I'd check with you guys, don't be too hard on me. Not sure where to get a manual but would probably be a good idea.
Who knows, I might actually now let someone else drive it.
