i put in on by hand. i could not find any zerk fittings....

is there a spot to grease up by the steering wheel as well?



anybody know anywhere good for cheap quality steering cable? or a part number?

also, as far as a new cable, where would i grease it correctly as periodic maintenance? did i grease my current cable correctly? as i said, i did not see any fittings...

On our 2002 209 / X-9 which is a similar boat, there is a bracket in the bilge where the steering or rudder cable is mounted. There is a grease fitting on it, and another on the metal tube that the cable runs through. You would probably need to pull up the access panel in the floor behind the motor box, and get down real low to see them. They are probably under the forward part of the gas tank. I've also seen grease fittings on the steering box behind the dash on some boats we've owned.

I just replaced mine you can check out my thread which isn't specific to the fix but I gave some details.

The grease zirk is on there or fell off. I am guessing if the cable is stiff its time to replace. I paid $125 on ebay.
part number ssc13419
