Teleflex NFB 4.2 (I think)

4 posts in this topic

Visual inspection it looks like the NFB 4.2.  A pamphlet that came with the boat papers says it has Teleflex NFB steering.  The boat is 2010 NauticStar w/115 Yamaha 4 stroke.  Steering stopped working, freewheels.  I can turn the motor by hand, not froze up.  It looks like I can loosen screws and remove the cable and just replace the helm.  Is this possible or do I have to replace helm and cable?

It looks like the Teleflex No Feedback 4.2 System uses a  TEL SSC62XX helical cable assembly.  The XX in the part number is the length. You can buy just the cable alone and you can buy just the helm unit alone part # TEL-SH4910P.

So, I should be able to loosen the top two bolts on the starboard side and the one bolt on the bottom starboard side and remove the cable from the helm.  Once that is done I should be able to tell if the helm is at fault or if the cable is broke between the helm and the motor.  Correct?

If the cable moves when you move the motor, that would indicate that the cable is OK and the helm unit is the problem.
