    Default Super Stuck Steering

    What have you guys found works to free a super stuck steering cable from the trim tube.I have run into this problem several times. I've tried Heat-Penetrating oil- even a bottle jack invention and last case, a hammer . No luck. This is a problem, as not only do I have to replace the trim tube, but have to cut the steering cable. Shame when cable is free in case, just forever stuck in trim tube.

    Is a factory replacement rusting repeatedly on you ??------Fairly standard item.----Perhaps look at getting a better quality tube from another manufacturer to fit your motor.
