Nice looking 1st Rib. If you listen to Polwarts advice you won't go far wrong even if he does go on a bit some times

Hi guys, only got out on the Rib for the 1st time last Wenesday after health and other minor problems. It has been sat outdoors all this time and she fired up 1st time no problem -temps looked ok when out running and the water was flowing out the cooling hole ok.

The only problem I have is very stiff steering -the system is hydrolic, it's stiff in every direction with the tilt up or down and in the water.. Any suggestions.. Could it just be a grease thing? Thanks.

PS. I will post a link to video and pics later if interested.. Thanks again.

There is a "friction" aka "stiffness" adjuster there somewhere. Stops kickback etc., and as it's hydraulic I reckon it may be set to "stiff". Have a nose around by the swivel point of the OB and also by your wheel. A + or - usually is a tell-tale. But it may come down to the fact that you are expecting a return to centre and that this is a "no feedback system" and so the helm will remain where it is until returned to centre. Also there is a fair amount of helm to overcome in a "no feedback system" so it may actually be ok.
Does that help?
