Seastar/Teleflex Rack Mechanical Rack Steering System

Without a properly functioning steering system, enjoying time out on the water can be difficult. Steering systems are a vital part of any boat and should be regularly maintained. Making sure they are working properly can avoid missed time on the water. Malfunctioning components to your steering system can lead to costly repairs. Updating and replacing the parts, including your Teleflex steering cables.

The Teleflex Steering rack system is a great option for power-assisted steering boats. The unique back mount rack and pinion steering system are easy to install and use a simple four turns lock-to-lock operation. The cable and helm are installed from behind the dash and there is no need for modifications to the dash.  This Teleflex steering cable system is recommended when 4-turn options are needed.


  • 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.


  • 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. certification 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: 

  • Locate the part number stamped on the plastic jacket of the old cable.
  • Then follow the manufacturer's directions for that part.
  • If you removed the old cable, measure for the replacement cable as follows:



For Rack and Pinion Steering System

Cable Replacement: 

  • Measure the existing cable as shown in the illustration.
  • 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.
