Replacing an Existing Tilt?
Identify the Existing Tilt Mechanism:
If the existing mechanism is a Teleflex
Performance Tilt, Teleflex offers drop-in
replacement components: Tilt mechanism,
helm and cable. If the existing mechanism is
Teleflex Standard or Deluxe Tilt, the mechanism
and helm must be replaced. The cable must
also be replaced unless the helm is a Safe-T
QC, NFB 4.2 or Big-T type.
If the existing Tilt system is Morse or any brand
besides Teleflex, the mechanism, helm and
steering cable must all be replaced. Scroll
