Red face Mastercraft X7 Steering is Stiff

I replaced my steering cable a few years back..i only have 342 hours on the boat total. The steering is getting stiff again, would this be because the rudder is probably neeidng grease? If so, is their a nipple that a grease gun can use to give it a shot of grease to loosen up the steering so it is back to normal good condition? Just new at this..any help would be very appreciated. Thanks

there should be 2 zerks one for the rudder and one for your steering cable... you have to dig into the bilge and in there and when you grease the rudder grease should come out the bottom of the rudder and at the cable just give a couple of pumps... grease may come back out of the zerk i don't know if that is true for your year or not...
