MK steering off

Recommended Posts

I'll try to explain this as best as possible.  I have an Mk Edge #40. with the directional arrow pointing forward 12 o'clock,and the foot control being level I toe down all the way to the deck to turn right I'm only turning slightly to about 1 or 2 o'clock to go any futhure I have heel down spin the arrow counter clock wise until it reaches 1 or 2. Does this make sence? Thoughts?

Line the arrow up with the lower unit.  Going all the way fw or bw with pedal usually gives you an almost 180° rotation from middle, or dead ahead.  Bottom line, your moving the pedal too far and the arrow is misaligned.

If you pull the head off the top of the motor you can make adjustments to the gearing to change the TM position according to the foot controls latitude to the boat as well as aligning the Arrow with the lower unit's direction.  Generally it's four screws from the underside and the top comes off.

If I uderstand your problem. You turn your TM right and it only goes to the 1 or 2 o'clock position.

The first thing to try is rotate the whole TM head and shaft. So lossen the up down adjustment and turn the whole TM shaft  maybe half turn you will see the foot petal move. Check your rotation if you went the right way you should see improvement if not go the other way.

Now your Arrow just drop your tolling motor  in the driveway and if the arrow is piont were the trolling motor is aimed you are good. If not get flat screw drive and gently pry the arrow off and rotate.

You can often get your cable in a bad postion (flopping around) by rotating the shaft then you need to adjust the cable. Thats a little harder.
