There is a cable lubricator that looks like a syringe with a hose and clamp on it to attach to the cable. I have never used one but it looks like it would work well. As for the cable it is better to replace it than have it brake at the worse time.

I have a 2000 mercury 125 hp that is very tight to turn i thank its by the motor


Hey Bryan,
When was the last time you greased the steering pivots on the motor?
If this boat has manual steering, your cable(s) are getting a little rusty... may be time to replace them.. they ARE your life line.. (I was in a bassboat that the steering cable broke.. INSTANT 120 DEGREE Right turn..!!)

Steering gear


Hi Alfred.

Your answer will depend on the fishing boat.
For really small boats, with an outboard motor on the back, the motor will be on a pivot joint, and have a handle in front. You point the running motor side to side to steer the boat.

Larger boats with outboards will have a steering wheel with a mechanical linkage to an outboard motor or motors that will pivot them side to side to steer.

Larger fishing boats, especially commercial boats, will have an inboard engine and prop shaft, a fixed external propellor or propellors, and a rudder that is connected with a mechanical linkage to the steering wheel or ships-wheel to move the rudder side to side and steer the boat by deflecting how the water flows by when under way.

Hoping this helps.

Gidday,i am trying to find out the year of my 50 h power mercury blue band . The serial number I have is 8016593 and I am looking for both the inner and outer wiring harnesses


50 hp is a 4 cylinder powerhead.. blue band denotes 80s model engines.. my dads was a red band 69 model.. the red band stopped in the late 70s like 79 .. the wire harnesses are almost identical from 40 hp on up to about 80 or higher, just a heavier set of starting cables.. may need to check into used equipment.. might find something easier there.. check mwith a mercury dealer near you also..

Mercury outboard problems


the primer going flat indicates that the fuel is getting a vacuum in the system
the most obvious place is the vent in the fuel tank cap not being unscrewed to allow air in as the fuel is being used or that vent hole is blocked or rusted up
if by chance you have being using E fuel, it is now known that ethanol attracts water and separates from the fuel
that water attraction rusts tanks , corrodes alloy parts and destroys rubber hoses
it is especially not recommended for use on marine vessels and outboard motors
so the problem could be a stack of rust in the tank blocking off the inlet line

Stearing on my 4yo 60hp mercury outboard will not budge


if you have "rotary" or "rack and pinion" steering. what your dealing with is rust. 2 things you can do to test the steering system. (1) tilt engine all the way down using the trim an tilt system. On the engine, you will see a steering rod that is parallel to the transom. One side of the rod is connected to the engine(ignore that connection), the other side curves down and connects to the steering cable. Disconnect steering rod from cable by unscrewing the nut counter clockwise. Once you disconnect the steering rod from cable. Push steering rod forward towards bow swinging it out of the way. Engine is now free from boat steering system. “Testing the engine steering tube“ all you have to do is manually turn the engine port and starboard using your hands. If your able to turn engine, the problem is the boat steering system. which you can fix. If you can' turn the engine then the job will require the engine to be removed from boat and transom bracket rebuilt. Take it to a repair shop.(2) with the engine still disconnected from the boat steering system. Get in the boat and turn the steering wheel. A good steering system you should be able to turn the wheel with just a finger. If wheel does not turn, you have one of two problems. Bad cable or bad steering helm. I always tell my customer to change both as a kit as a safety issue. if you are trying to save money. pull cable from helm, turn wheel if it turns easy replace cable (keep cable don't throw it away you have to get it matched) if wheel still stuck replace helm.

Mercury 115 problems


This could me that reverse gear is not fully engaged.Adjustment on the cables is needed.Take the cowlings off.With the motor not running,move the throttle/gear selector into forward and reverse.You will see where the cables move in the engine area.Note which way the cable moves the selector when reverse is selected.Do this next bit from inside the boat.Hook up the flusher to the motor and start it.Select reverse.When you hear the grinding,push the selector by hand in the direction of travel.It should engage the gear fully.You will see the adjustment threads on the control cables.Move to suit.Hope this helps
