Teleflex Steering for SR4

Little Joe requires a new steering system. Where's the place to source a light duty (upto 50hp) teleflex kit? 3.5m as it happens, now then, now then.

Don't do it, you miserable git! Your poor daughter will have arms like a ploughman!

Seriously, with your Wonda 50 on the back, that thing will be a handful with teleflex.

You've already ruled out Tiller for Milli on strength grounds...

Granted you'll never see a return on your investment (other than a warm fuzzy feeling) but you know that, er, highdrawlick is the answer. It's not like you're short of the 400 squid...

Mine wasn't a handful with Teleflex and a Mariner 50.

I didn't know if I was missing something here.
I have NFB steering and the helm isn't heavy, my cables are routed straight under the console then sweep round to the engine so not too many bends.
I would have thought Mollers kid would be able to use it fine.

I've had a 60hp clamshell and now the Yam 55hp on it, both were fine.
