Mines the other way around. If I'm trimmed too low, you can't turn it. Trim up/out and I can turn it with my pinky. A 90hp should not require hydraulic steering in order to turn the wheel. My guess is you my have a corroded or kinked cable.Massive torque! Lol well can you trim your motor? If so trimmed all the way down at wot will let u turn easier, the higher you trim the harder it is to turn.
Just out of curiosity, what kind of speed do you get out of that "Bee"? I haven't seen one around in a long time...Tightlines....... thanks for the reply and the tip on the hydraulic line clearance. I watched a little Youtube video on the system and I see exactly what you're talking about. I may look at the prices on the made to length hydraulic hose. I know they have to be pricey, but I'm thinking they'd eventually be the way to go, whether you have clearance problems or not. I really like what you reported on steering effort ...... I'm in a 16 1/2' Bumble Bee with a 120 on it, and it is a bear to turn left when I have it up and running. Thanks again for the reply and tip.
Ranger I know what you mean about maybe having a problem with it, but you can have the same problem with cables if one snaps. A cable snapping is exactly what I think about when I have to pull that steering wheel that hard. You do have a great point on a new fish finder though...... I'd love to have a side scan unit. lol Looks like I may have to do a little weighing in my mind. lol Thanks again guys....... much appreciated.
