I have a 17ft bonito center console boat that the steering broke on. We found out the problem was the helm and replaced it, but when i tried turning the steering wheel to test it out the steering wheel would barely move, but wouldn't budge. I detached the motor from pivot arms that connect it from the steering cable and the motor turned just find on it's own. Thinking it might be the cable jammed up, need help> :(

if you have the push pull steering helm.

the inter cable of your steering can be rusted or corrosion has gotten to it and has seized the inter cable to the outer housing.

have to replace the whole steering cable is it teleflex or rod guide.

here this shows how to replace rack and pinion steering. i will try to find one for the rotary type but it will be the same except under the steering wheel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQTZJ4XJ1-c

Here is the rotary one also. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H78qv9o0 ... re=related

it's a teleflex, and the boat is 21 years old so that may be it.
