    Default Advice for possible repair

    Have a 1990 25 hp Evinrude that when I let go of the steering handle at all the motor will always go to one side. I don't remember which way. Is there a way to tighten up the steering on it, or maybe a part needs to be replaced?
    Thanks for any tips.

    Thanks for the quick replies. It does not look to be to difficult, but looks can be deceiving. It is my son's boat and it is at his house, but I use it occasionally.
    Should I order the spring also, Part # 72 or does it come with one? The picture of the screw itself is not very clear.

    Thanks again.

    It's probably fine.....try to tighten it. Think you can reach it from the front even while motor is clamped to the transom. There is a grease fitting for that pivot also. That is accessible from the side.

    I'll take a look at it next time I get a chance, now that I know what to look for. It is one of those annoying things, but just not sure what was involved to remedy it.

    Thank you.

    Yes....the pivot tensioning is critical for safer as well as comfortable operation.
