Boat 23 ft Sea Ray
Engine Mercruiser 260
Last year I was having trouble steering my boat it was very stiff. I found out I had a bad cable replaced it. Before I hooked it up to the out drive in the stern i tested it and it turns GREAT left and right. But when I hook it up to the power steering and have the boat running it turns great left and but is very hard to turn to the right. WHat could this BE?
Also with the boat not running sitting in the drive way I am unable to move my out drive back and forth lock to lock? My out drive only moves very little about a quarter turn of the wheel then locks and will not go either direction. But once I start the engine it moves again but if I shut the engine off I will only be able to move out drive only about a quarter turn again. I am not sure if these 2 problems are related or seprate. I really would appreicate some help on this.... THANK you for your reply's
