steering pulls to da right

95 p'star 190,- new to inboards,- no dealer within 500 miles, -decent boat i think, just needs a little (a lot of) attention..........
the craft pulls to the right, the steering is stiff, and the wheel is off by 90degrees, (although rudder, cable, and pivot have been greased) (1) are these related problems, (2) solutions?suggestions?
I live in the middle of B.C.,............recomendations for a dealer?
Where might i find a workshop manual &/or parts manual for my new toy?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome!
As others have said, the steering sounds ok.
The download section has a 91-93 manual that should get you started in the right direction. If you use the contact MasterCraft link on the main page thay can probobly help you with a manual as well.

Yes, skidim.com is a good source for parts as well as advise. There are a number of MasterCraft dealers that use this website and many of them will ship the parts you need to you.

You will find that this site can provide you with help on most anything you need.

By the way, if you haven't found out already, these boats don't steer well in reverse.

The steering is fine. It does that so you will have constant tension and no play in the wheel while pulling through the course or while maintaining a straight line.

Look at the rear (starboard) trailing edge of your rudder. Sounds like the P.O. took a belt sander to it to put a little pull into the boat. Mine came with that feature. The point is to make it easier to hold straight with a skier in tow. Once you get used to it, in my experience, you'll not only wonder what you did without it, but driving a boat without torqued steering will drive you nuts.

Welcome to the board.

I have a 97 ProStar 190 it also pulls to the right but steers easy. If there is no MC dealer close by try another inboard dealer in you're area.
I have been looking for a service manual for the 97 but have a difficult time finding one MasterCraft and Indmar are protective of the manuals from what I hear.
