I put on two wraps overlapped on opposite sides, tightened, then wiggled the steering arm, tighten wiggle, and so on. I pulled the nut off and The Graphite eventually formed a nice 1/2 inch wide smooth edge around the shaft. , and I cant get the nut any tighter, using a large box wrench. Rudder still turns nice and smooth so I think its good to go. There is still about 1/2 inch of threads left to go down if it needed tightened later, but I am hoping not because there is no access without pulling the gas tank.

working on the fuel pump and water pump today. Are there any special tricks to priming the fuel pump, or will this work automatically? The entire fuel system is new - dry including tank, line, pump, carb.

Also, this had an electric pump on it which I removed, where should the fuel filter go? Before on the input or output side of the mechanical fuel pump?

No drain plug on those... need a fluid extractor to pull out the old fluid. You can get most of it out with one of those.

that is what I thought, improvized and used a long clear hose and syphened most of it out.

Thanks, tomorrow I am off for the first test ride!

Inexpensive drill pumps work well.
