PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SeaStar Solutions The Rack Mechanical Rack Steering System

Traditional Mechanical steering is still the choice for sterndrives, inboards and other power assisted applications. It's just right for power steered boats in which No Feedback systems are not required. Teleflex's unique back mount Rack system features the precision and comfort of four turns lock-to-lock with a cable and helm that install easily from behind the dash. In single cable configurations, this is the best 4-turn choice for power-steered boats.

Applications:

  • Virtually all power-assisted sterndrive boats with steering wheels up to 16" diameter.
  • 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.


How to Measure Steering Cables - Measure Twice. Order Once.

Replacement of Existing Cable: If possible, find the part number stamped on the plastic jacket of the old cable. If you removed the old cable, measure for the replacement cable as follows:

For Rack Steering Cable Replacement, Measure Existing Cable as follows: Measure plastic cable jacket (“Y” dimension shown in above drawing) in inches, add 30″, and round up to next foot. Order that length cable.

 

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. Order that length cable.

For Cables Mounted to Transom, Splashwell or Stringer: Add A, B & C, then subtract 6″ and round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
