Re: Steering cable seized
FIRST!!!!! NO HAMMERS!!!
The end of the cable will mushroom out and it will not come through the steering tube.
Get someone inside the boat. While you push on the motor, one way or the other have someone turn the wheel.
Maybe a small bit of heat.
Once it comes loose.Use white lithium or a spray oil.
Most greases when you add salt water will gunk up and make it hard to steer.
I keep a can of WD-40 in my boat and spray the steering arm and moving parts EVERY time I go out.
Use a white lithium based marine grease on your other grease fittings.
You can't disasemble the cable.J
boats . net worst place to buy parts.
Get towing insurance.Great investment.
