where is the best place to purchase whole new steering kit for the searider with fibre glass screened front end?
You can rarely fix a crossed thread with a die as the die will follow the crossed thread. You will need a thread file or a triangle needle fle to clean it up first. Throw the old nut away and get a new one. Once you have it cleaned up you can use a die or a new nut to chase the thread back to it's original form. use plenty of oil and take it slow. Maybe a new helm would be the right choice???

The new helm kit for a sub-55hp engine is probably the answer.

It might be time to think of doing a conversion to centre console if you were thinking about it-it'll save you buying a new cable.

finally got the fooker off it didnt budge with the puller had to split it with hacksaw blade near key way and then use wedge to split it ,
is this a 12mm thread on the shaft or any offers will try new nut as shaft is not to bad a part from the rusty key! and first threads
i dont mind buying a kit if one is available thatwill go straight in place of this want to keep it as it is for now quite like the bucket seats and screen
the taper is 3/4 at the back so is this a standard for steering wheels
the wheel itsefl is 13 inch outside diameter

so need a wheel and nut or a kit if ones available for this boat any ideas on helpful cheeeeep marine stores
thanx again for all the help

It's genuine teleflex so it should be fine. Price looks pretty good!

If you're lucky it's printed on your cable. I've always taken the old one in when I bought a replacement so I don't know. Might be worth ringing them and asking.

still trying to get a steering kit , contacted a few shops now and no one gets back to me on how to measure my existing cable they just give a diagram of abc add them up and add 6inch, etc etc. if replacing a cable do you measure nut to nut on sleeve
this is printed in the existing cable on the cable it says made by teleflex SSC 7211 11 FT FE888 which i thought could be read as 11foot but nut to nut 9 foot 10 inches
thanx

Ive recently just put a new teleflex steering system on my sr4 and the measurement of the cable was taken from the union on the end of the sleeve at the helm to the very end of the steering cable when its at mid stroke - have attached a pic.
