Looking to adjust the tension on this older motor but don't have the owners manual and am not that familiar with it. It steers a little too loose.

There should be a bolt located on the swivel bracket, turn it CW a bit till the loose issue is canceled, don't over tight the nut or risk screwing what's inside the swivel bracket. A proper adjustment it's the one that when the tiller is released the boat will run at a straight line...
