Teleflex Rack & Pinion Sterndrive Mechanical Steering (Traditional)




Technical Reference Manual




NOTE: When properly installed, this steering system will connect to engines with ABYC standard tilt tubes, using engine manufacturer's link arm. For other engines, see Steering Connection Kits section for options.



Traditional Teleflex mechanical steering is still the choice for stern drives, inboards and other power assisted applications. It's just right for power steered boats in which No FeedBack systems are not required. Our new Rack 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 stern drive boats with wheels up to 16" diameter.

Back Mount Rack Replaces 1984-date Teleflex "The Rack" and Morse Command 200 steering without dash modification. (Requires use of SSC134XX Back Mount Rack cable.)

For single station use only.

Components are available for dual cable systems, but we recommend No-FeedBack steering for all dual cable steered, non-power assisted outboards and stern drives. See the NFB Pro Rack Dual Cable and SeaStar PRO sections of this catalog.



Features:

  • Precise, easy 4 turns lock-to-lock.
  • Kits include: cable, helm, 90 bezel and hardware.
  • 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 Teleflex and Morse rack holes.
  • Meets A.B.Y.C. standards.
  • Meets N.M.M.A. certification requirements.
