Does the steering pull to one side while coming up to speed.
Have you adjusted the trim tabs on the motor?
they help to counteract the prop torque.
the motor will naturally have a torque to one side
because of the prop rotation.

How to adjustment jets on a suzuki 115 hp outboard 1989


I am not familiar with the Suzuki brand but short of small motors (under 25 hp) most if not all motors by 1989 are fixed jet and not adjustable. If fuel is the problem, cleaning it the answer.

1989 galaxie boat. inboard/outboard 4.3l stiff steering


The first thing I would do is disconnect the steering at the transom. You want to find out if the problem is in the helm(steering wheel) or in the inboard/outboard pivots.

When you turn the wheel after the disconnect, it should not be hard. There is a set screw in the steering assembly either above or below the dash. There should be enough tension so the boat does not wander but not enough to be terrible to steer.

Next go to the outdrive. Without the steering connected, the outdrive should move with minimum resisitance in either direction. There are pivot points on top and bottom that should have marine grease at the start of each season.

You have a 21 year old boat. The driveshaft in the Inboard/Outboard should be greased every 2 to 3 seasons and the watertight bellows can be inspected at that time.

Now if the steering is even worse under power, you need to adjust the fin that drops down behind the prop. This part controls Torque steer so the outdrive is not trying to turn on you and wants to stay straight. If you do not have a problem leave it alone.

You can get an estimate for the driveshaft service and greasing U-joints and inspecting the bellows. They should grease the pivot points then too. I am told its about a 2 hour job. In my area its 60-70 an hour.
