Hi this is normally done by removing the cap to gain access to the large nut under it, then using a soft hammer or mallet ( or even a piece of hard wood) hit the stem that the nut was on and the washer under it will pop off, you will have to get a friend to pull at the same time you hit, but be careful as my friend lost a tooth as he pulled it to hard and came off and hit him in the face so please take care doing this...hope this helps

Hi

On the back of your steering wheel is four Phillips head screws (bolts)which holds the outer cover in place on the spokes.
Once the outer cover is off, you'll see a big nut. Remove the nut, which usually requires you to lock down the steering wheel some how (a piece of pipe thru the spokes works). Some times you can just yank it off the shaft, but not very often. You might have some luck with a deadblow hammer on the back side, but you can damage or bend it. Most times you'll need a puller, which only takes a couple of turns to free it from corrosion, then it pops loose.
This will expose the heads of three machine bolts. Put a socket on the back and take them out.

Most unbolt from behind with 4 bolts. If you are referring to the steering shaft from the steering wheel unscrew the nut on the shaft. Don't take the nut all the way off. Place a flat or ball peen hammer on the shaft with the handle under the rim of the wheel. While prying up with the hammer strike the first hammer with another hammer. Wheel should come right off. When replacing put a thin coat of grease on the shaft.


Please accept the solution if it’s helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

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.

Steering on starcraft fishing boat


Some one has assembled the rack to the wrong side of the steering wheel shaft, OR put the cable down the wrong side of the boat, OR switched from a pivot steering anchor to a transom mount anchor (you would have had a drag link left over.)

Moving the steering from aft to forward on a runabout


There are a couple of options. If you forgo the steering wheel I know that Johnson and others make a Tiller extender. I have been able to move up a seat in a 12 foot boat using this. On my motor the speed control was on the Tiller handle. Still had to jump back to use gear shift.

The oldstyle controls used 2 cables and pulleys to steer wheel. You will have a time to find short enough cables to do motor RPM and shifter. Then you will need to mount steering wheel to something to turn it.

There are Salvage yards for Boats just like there are for cars. Do an internet search for your area. Then pull your boat there and explain what you want to do. Look under Marine Salvage, Marine Salvage yards.

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.

Can not remove the plate the steering weel sits on


Get under the dash and look at the back. You will see a big nut on the rotary part where the cable feeds into the steering system. Loosen that nut all the way. With the nut loose you can turn your steering wheel until the cable comes out. Then you can remove the steering wheel and the three bolts holding it on.
