What parts are included in the bezel and mounting hardware kit?
All parts are included
IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I INSTALLED THIS ITEM BUT I BELIEVE THE KIT INCLUDED A MOUNTING PLATE AND THREE SCREWS THAT PASS THROUGH THE DASH AND FASTEN THE STEERING BOX TO THE BACK SIDE OF THE DASH. THE BEZEL FASTENS TO THE SAME MOUNTING PLATE WITH TWO SUPPLIED SCREWS. there WERE PROBABLY LOCKWASHERS OR SOME OTHER KIND OF THREAD LOCKERS AS WELL BUT I JUST DON'T REMEMBER THAT DETAIL.
I can't remember
Do you need to get a cable or will this work with the original cables?
Mine worked with original cable.
I've never seen one with two steering cables. Are you sure one cable isn't your reverse bucket control? In any case the JBS system you're looking at is a single cable system. I believe however that they make (or made in the past) a dual system used on the twin jet SeaDoo Speedster - have not seen an aftermarket version of that though.
My boat has two cables for the steering one on each side of the jet. Not sure it that makes a difference. Ill have to see what connections it has
This system requires a push-pull cable with a ball end coupler on the steering wheel end so if that's what you have it'll probably work.
I bought a Teleflex steering system, but I need to hook it up to a 66 Johnson outboard. Do you have a connecting bracket for it?Larrlynn
I don't think I can help much. I bought a Telelflex jet boat steering system for a jet boat application. Because of my one-of-a-kind project, I had a cable custom built to my specs and fabricated all my own bracketry.I'd go to the Teleflex website and search on "steering brackets" or "steering connection kits" or something similar.Good Luck,Marshall Young (AKA Frankenboatcaptain)
Wally: Is all the hardware needed included in this kit? I know the cable is not included.Am I wrong?..Thanks,Wally
You're correct. No cable and no wheel. Everything else needed to install the system is there! Be aware the wheel to box interface is a keyed/tapered joint. Good luck.

Works as advertized
Replaced in My 1999 Sugar Sand and it works perfect. Easy to install High Quality materials.
Love this product fit like a glove
This product looks and fit like the original factory part. Very easy to install, I've never worked on a steering system for a small water craft before and wasn't sure of myself the instruction were clear and the mounting bracket could be used in several different application plus I saved my old steering helm which made it extremely easy to match up. I installed the helm and new steering cable (sold separately) and now the steering operates like new again. Also they had the best pricing that I found. Good luck and safe boating
