I spoke with tech support at TeleFlex (Seastar Solutions) this morning and the gentleman on the phone basicly said that my tilt steering unit part #9151018 was junk. The replacement part is #
SH91810P.
I found it for $135.97 shipped from blackbearsportinggoods.com

Is this an improved version?

Yes, the bushing is gone. Replaced with a bearing. I'll snap a close-up pic of it when it arrives.

Got the new part yesterday and installed this morning. First, the new part had no packing material inside the box, just in a plastic bag. The inside of the box looked like all the parts got in a fight with each other. Amazingly the parts were unscathed. This was the fault of Teleflex. The one on the left is the old unit, right new.

Wanted to toss this out there for all of us.... I had the same issue with my tilt helm, rudder issues, and steering cable..... I've done the shoot and match by now, but for a fraction of the cost..... I dismantled everything to determine the problem areas....

Helm was missing two bushings on the port side of the mechanism. I pulled it apart, took it to my local parts house (tractors and mowers and trucks) and for $3.00 they gave me two bushings and I was in business. All tight!!!!!! Good as new.

Now the shaft that was still in the helm still had some drag in it. I took it all apart, and the shaft has a retainer washer. Pulled it off, removed the shaft from the housing, and applied new white lithium grease. Re-assembled and the wheel spins like a bike tire now.

I can't stress enough, even with all these things the steering cable was the trick. Cost $200 and worth every penny.

If you have the time and resources, take the helm apart and see if your local hardware shop can help you out.

Good luck owners.
