My 888 #1 drive seems to have significant side/side play in the steering. This is a non-power steering V8, 1976 vintage. If I measure the play it probably allows the drive to swing 1.5" to either side if the drive is centered and tilted up. As far as I can tell, the play is from the pivot bolt holding the steering arm to the steering bar. I do not thing the problem is with the tiller arm where it attaches in the gimbal housing. I tried taking the bolt out and didn't see any major wear so I installed a new nylon washer, wave washer and tightened it back to about spec of 18 ft.lbs. There is now a bit less play, but there is still some. How much is normal/acceptable? Las year it was the same and it never bothered me, nut I'm investigating it now that I have installed a new NFB helm and cable (which took out a slight bit of the play as well). Is this just normal for the non PS drives?
