* Since this may be relatively new, replacement of entire system may not be necessary. Please consult your dealer/distributor to determine which
part of the system may need to be replaced.
If engine is power-assisted, NFB steering cannot be used. Note that only difference between 1990-
1996 and 1996-date Safe-T QC helms is shape of the helm housing castings.
** Slight dash modification required for installation of recommended new helm. If engine is power-assisted, NFB steering cannot be used.
† Safe-T II is for engines up to and including V-4’s. For manually steered outboards larger than V-4, use NFB 4.2 or XTREME NFB.
KEY TO CHART HEADINGS: Rotary Steering has a rounded diecast helm (steering gear case) behind dash; Rack & Pinion Steering has a long
metal tubular rack housing behind dash; Hydraulic Steering has 2 or 3 hoses (or tubing sections) attached to helm behind dash.
* Cable only can be replaced if SeaStar Solutions helm is present. ** Some dashboard modifications required to install SeaStar Solutions helm.
† No FeedBack steering is recommended for non-power-assisted engines only. Safe-T II is for engines up to and including V-4’s. For manually
steered outboards larger than V-4, use NFB 4.2 (single or dual cable) or NFB Rack (single or dual cable). If engine is power-assisted, NFB steering
cannot be used.
NOTE: When a Rack system is being replaced by a Rotary system (or vice-versa), you must measure for the replacement system using SeaStar
Solutions catalog measuring instructions. See steering cable measurement section for information on how to measure for replacement cables.
The Morse®
(P/N 312020) and U-Flex (P/N M66) “universal” replacement cables for rotary steering systems are not recommended for use with
SeaStar Solutions helms. In accordance with A.B.Y.C. recommended practices, SeaStar Solutions recommends that engine maker connection kits
be used with all outboard motors.
