    Default "YAMAHA 90ETLH about 85-87 yea

    "YAMAHA 90ETLH about 85-87 year I think, having problems with the motor hard to steer. We have disconnected the steering cable and it is loose and fine. We have greased and put some heat to the base where the grease fitting is located to try and loosen the motor. But it got a little worse. It takes all the muscle you can get to get it to turn. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem could be or any other ideas as to how we might get it to loosen. Thanks"

    if its any consulation mine is exactly the same. very smooth and easy to move at low speed but at high speed it takes alot. if you trim it up a bit it does improve a bit.
