Description

SeaStar Solutions The Rack Mechanical Rack Steering System

Traditional mechanical steering is still the optimal choice for sterndrives, inboards, and other power-assisted propulsion applications. Ideal for power-steering equipped boats, Teleflex rack and pinion steering systems perform whenever “No Feedback” systems are not a requirement. SeaStar Solutions’ unique back mount rack and pinion steering system is a precise and simple operation of four turns lock-to-lock with a cable and helm that install with ease from behind the dash without the need for alterations. In single cable configurations, the Teleflex Rack and Pinion Steering System is the best recommendation when you are in need of 4-turn options for a power-steered boat.

Applications:

  • For use on all power-assisted sterndrive boats with steering wheels up to 16" diameter.
  • Note: Back Mount Rack replaces 1984 - date Teleflex "The Rack" steering without dash modification.

Features:

  • Kits include: cable, helm, 90 degree bezel and hardware.
  • Precise, easy 4 turns lock-to-lock.
  • Standard 3/4" round tapered steering shaft.
  • Stainless steel cable output ends.
  • Fast, easy installation: back mount design allows quick placement in dash PLUS mounting hardware fits industry-standard Telefelx rack holes.
  • Meets A.B.Y.C. standards.
  • Meets N.M.M.A. certifiaction requirements.

Components are available for dual cable systems, but it is recommended to use No-FeedBack steering for all dual cable steered, non-power-assisted outboards and sterndrives.

New Installation:

  • Measure cable routing path from wheel center line to engine connection, as follows:
    • A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (or deck, if routed downward)
    • B = Dash to transom
    • C = Gunwale to centerline of cable connection at centered tiller.

For Cable Installations through the Engine Tilt Tube:

  • Add A, B & C + 6″, then round up to the next foot.
