View Full Version : steering coloum shaking

07-13-2010, 12:46 PM
Hey Guys my steering wheel and column is shaking when the steering wheel is turned all the way left or right with boat moving. It seems as if the prop wash is shaking it. I did replace the cable this spring and it steers like a dream. I have taken the column apart and tried to tighten everything but still did nothing. Could it be my rudder is not tight enough? It dosen't have any play in it. Any ideas, Oh 05 lsv is the boat!

bent prop? even a slight kink in one of the blades will produce shutter in the steering.

There are slight bends on the top of all blades. I guess I should put on my rebuilt prop. I bought it like this. There is no vibration at speed or surfing. I will try and change it over this weekend! Thanks for the reply!
