    1996 SLTX 1050 Steering Problems

    The last time we were at the lake the steering went out and started taking on some water. After taking a good look at it out of the water I can see a white plastic part that the steering cable goes through that looks broken. I have tried to look for thru hull fittings to see if that needs to be replaced or if I have got to replace the steering cable. With that two questions which part do I need and how difficult is it to fix? Thanks.

    Welcome to the hulk

    you should not need the complete steering cable, but just the white Nut but finding just the white nut could be harder then just getting a new cable.

    I seem to recall someone fixing a similar problem with the plastic nut/fitting that normally connects the water tube to the water inlet on a regular toilet.

    Check the broken part against the plumbing supply section of your local hardware store, you may find a match (or something close enough to be made to work).

    If you find one that is a near perfect fit, post it here so others can find the info later.
