Teleflex NFB 4.2 Dual Outboard Mechanical Steering

Technical Reference Manual


(4.2 turns lock-to-lock)

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. NFB
is not for use with power assisted steering or autopilots.

Patented No FeedBack Steering Control for about the cost of an old-fashioned
steering replacement.
With the advantage of 4.2 turns lock-to-lock and our
patented No FeedBack steering to lock out steering loads, Teleflex's 4.2
Rotary NFB Steering is the ideal system for most non-power steered boats.
This rugged dual cable system is made for applications with engine flutter or
steering instability. The helm is a drop-in replacement for current generation
Safe-T with no dash modifications required.


NFB 4.2 dual-cable systems are suitable for most single-station boats with a single nonpow er-as sist ed outboard engine up to V-6 in which en gine flutter or steering instability is present. 4.2 accepts wheels up to 16" diameter.

Replaces nearly all Teleflex Safe-T steering systems (including twin cable) without dash modification.
