Question

Will it fit my boat?

I own a 1993 Ranger 374V with a Mercury 150 XR6. It already has a dual cable system on it now. If this one fits my boat do I have to change my steering wheel?

Questions about Teleflex NFB system

My outboard "flops 90 degrees" when I let go of steering wheel at trolling speed. Will this steering system fix that problem? Are installation instructions included with this kit? Can I install it without removing my my 90HP Mercury outboard or is a boat dealer/marina required to install it??

Can you let go of the steering wheel with the NFB and it maintain course yes
**Should you NO**
Yes all of their products are shipped with instruction sheets.
It will depend on the boat about the engine removal or not all boats are different and some just do not have the splash well space where others do.
Many, Many boat owners install their own cable steering systems. Thanks

If that is the largest engine that boat can take and it is doing under 50MPH you could use the SS151xx rack kit. You would then need the transom mount kit.**Note** salt water only use Stainless Steel version

Tilt and trim are with the throttle and shift controls not the steering.
