View Full Version : Broken Steering

Today on the lake after some hard turns the gearing on the input shaft busted off a few teeth.
Is it new helm time? Looks like a big t except it has tilt. Anybody every have this happen on a
89 maristar 240?

I have a '90 Tristar, and the same thing happened to me. Took it shop a shop, and the bolts and the linkage all came apart and almost locked up the steering. It was an easy fix, but had to pull the wheel off, then take apart the dash to get access to the hardware. Crappy problem if out on the water...
