Teleflex NFB Safe-T II Outboard Mechanical Steering

Technical Reference Manual


(3 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.

Major OEMs use Teleflex Safe-T II, and so will your customers. It's the next generation of Safe-T, the world's #1 rotary steering system-rugged, compact, lightweight, and with Teleflex No FeedBack technology. This ultra-smooth 3-turn system takes the work out of steering most V-4 outboard powered boats. The Safe-T II helm is a drop-in replacement for current generation Safe-T QC with no dash modifications!


NFB Sate-T II single-cable systems are suitable for most single-station boats with a single nonpower-assisted outboard engine up to V-4 and minimal engine flutter or steering instability. Safe-T II accepts wheels up to 16" diameter.

(NFB Safe-T II is available in single cable con figuration only).

Replaces nearly all standard Safe-T steering without dash modifications.
