Default steering wheel

my steering wheet is very hard to turn. anyone have any ideas what could be wrong the boat is a 23sr with a 5.0 engine. there seems to be a cable that runs to the back of the boat. Dont know if it is cable driven or hydrilic but dont think so since all i see is one cable running from the steering wheet to the back of the boat. Any suggestions will be useful

Thanks

Mark

Cable steering with a power assist ram on the transom assembly. Have you checked the fluid level in the power steering pump?

Next disconnect the cable at the transom assembly to see itís still stiff. If so replace the cable.

Thanks for reply
the only pump i can find is the pump for the outdrive to go up and down which has fluid in it. Is there another pump with fluid in the resivior for the steering. Thanks

If you have steering assist and I believe you do the pump is mounted on the front of the engine and driven by the belt. It will have a round cap on top to check add fluid.

Thanks Guys for your suggestion.

Is it hard to disconnect the cable that connects into the sleeve to remove it. is there other things that need to be disconnected in order to pull it out of the sleeve. Have any or u have done it. Any your tubes to suggest.

Thanks for your suggestions

Outer sleeve and inner cable are a single assembly.
To replace 'the cable' you would need to remove the pin connecting the inner cable to the steering ram and back of the retaining nut on the outer sleeve at the stern. If it's the Teleflex rack style, the whole rectangular housing will unbolt from the steering hub at the helm.

Have you checked to see if there is a friction knob or screw on the steering wheel?
