Installation Check

When installation is complete, check for interference between steering components and the motor, boat, and accessories from lock-to-lock in both the running and tilted positions. Correct any interference before operating the boat. Any interference could cause steering damage and loss of control if the motor strikes an underwater object and tilts up.

When replacement parts are required, specify genuine Evinrude/Johnson parts or parts with equivalent characteristics including type, strength, and material. Failure to use equivalent parts could result in product malfunction and possible injury to operator or others.
