I have a relitavely new steering cable. Like 1.5 yrs old and very low hours on it.

It is and has always been a little stiff at all times. Wet, dry, on the trailer, driving, etc.

I'm considering doing this rudder removal on my boat.

Looking at the photos the o-rings are installed in the rudder box not the rudder? Correct?

Next I'm sure that the rudder box has caked on nasty stale grease. Besides cleaning the rudder that is easy to clean, how or what is recommended to clean the rudder box. I'm not just super wild about fully removing the box itself. But I'm wanting to start fresh with the box.

I have never taken the box apart and I'm sure that it has never been done.

From center to 1/2 a turn both ways it is fine. Once past 1/2 way it takes 2 hands.

I will post results

My MCOCD found another item to clean on my boat. It's never ending lol
