PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SeaStar Solutions Safe-T Quick-Connect Rotary Steering System - SS137

The Safe-T QC rotary steering kit provides quick and responsive three-turn steering with easy installation using a patented, no tools process. Note: requires cable connection at the helm.

Traditional SeaStar Solutions mechanical steering is a popular choice for sterndrives, inboards and other power assisted applications. It is ideal for power-steering boats where No FeedBack systems are not required. The Safe-T Quick Connect Steering System, a rotary steering kit, will cut installation time by 50%. In addition, its compact design requires a minimum space behind the dashboard. This safe, reliable steering system’s unique design offers ‘no tools’ installation.

Applications:

  • Virtually all power assisted sterndrive boats with steering wheels up to 16" diameter.
  • Safe-T QC replaces all Teleflex Safe-T helms made since 1968 with little or no dash modifications. (Requires use of SSC62 QC or SSC61 QC II steering cable.)
  • For single station use only.
  • Safe-T QC accepts wheels up to 16” diameter.

Features:

  • Trapping the nut on the engine end to prevent losing it during hook-up.
  • The compact rotary helm unit is easy to use: 3 turns lock-to-lock for standard travel,.
  • Standard 90° Safe-T bezel
  • Stainless steel cable output ends
  • Standard 3/4" tapered shaft
  • Recommended for single-engine craft up to 24'-long with steering wheels up to 16".
  • Quick-response of 3 turn lock-to-lock.
  • Standard 3/4” round tapered steering shaft
  • Stainless steel cable output ends.
  • Kits include: cable, helm, bezel, hardware, and instructions
  • Meets A.B.Y.C. standards
  • Meets N.M.M.A. certification requirements.
  • Available in 9-foot up to 18-foot lengths.

The rotary steering kit components are available for dual cable systems. We recommend using No-FeedBack steering for all dual cable steered, non-power-assisted outboards and sterndrives.

For a Big-T dual station steering system, the cable required is SSC81AxxBxx, where xx = the lengths of the two cable sections in feet. The letter “A” in the part number represents the cable routing path distance between steering stations. The letter “B” represents the cable routing path distance from the lower station to the engine/rudder area. The different cable lengths are available in one-foot increments only. EXAMPLE: if the cable routing from engine to lower station is 18 feet and 10 feet from station to station, order part number SSC81A10B18 cable.

Cable Measurement: Dual Stations

  • Path “A”:
  • Center line of upper station wheel to center line of lower station wheel
  • Path “B”:
  • Center line of lower station wheel to cable connection at centered tiller.
  • Centerline of boat or centered tiller

How to Measure Steering Cables “Measure Twice. Order Once.”

Replacement of Existing Cable: Locate the part number stamped on old cable’s plastic jacket. If this is not possible, measure for the replacement cable as follows:

steering-cable-measuring.jpg

For Rotary Steering Cable Replacement, Measure Existing Cable as follows: Measure plastic cable jacket (“Y” dimension, shown in above drawing) in inches, add 18″, and round up to the next foot. Order that cable length.


New Rotary Steering 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.

TYPICAL SINGLE STATION ROUTING

The diagram above shows a single-cable, starboard drive push-pull mechanical cable system. If your mechanical system is different than the one depicted and/or you have any questions about mechanical steering after reviewing this guide, please contact Teleflex (Mechanical) Technical Service at (610)-495-7011 or www.teleflexmarine.com.

Cable routings (such as those found on pontoon boats) may vary from this drawing. Confirm length by laying a garden hose or similar object) along cable path and measure run from wheel to engine connection point.
