    Default 82 Contessa 2850 steering issue

    Canít find this in searching.

    Volvo 280/Gm 350
    Original steering.

    Steering is very stiff but when I disconnect the helms from the link both steer very smooth. The lower helm is the one connected to the drive. Iím planning on cleaning out the tubes (any info on how to do this easier? 4 nuts on each tube and they are hard as heck to remove and no room) to see if that could help and just to freshen up lube. Outdrive turns pretty easily with just the lower helm connected.

    Thanks for any help you can give me!
