I just replaced my tach and screwed up. I bought one for 2004 and newer off ebay and it says no data scrolling across the LCD. Also does air water temp. Can I buy something else to make this tach work and display hours and air water temp .? I hate to have to buy another tach again. My original has a crack in the glass.

Also my steering is very stiff. What can I do to loosen it up?

I'm doing renos on it now including new carpet and am fixing every little thing Thats not perfect. Carpet looks great I will post photos soon

Sounds like you may need a new steering cable. Seems a little early for it though. Make sure your rudder shaft is lubed.

Most likely your cable is going bad. You can try to grease the fittings on for the rudder and cable sleeve towards the back of the boat, but I doubt that will help. We've replaced the cable twice on our 2001 X9.
