hard to steer

by pat
(sandy creek, ny)

I just bought a used 2000 glastron sx 175, starts and runs great, problem is the steering. is extremely difficult to turn in either direction. does nor have power steering, but I still cant imagine it should be this difficult. is there a way to adjust the cable, I see it kinda works on a push-pull cable attached to a rack n pinion type deal at he the steering column. there is nothing obstructing the movement, but there must be something, makes it very difficult/dangerous to handle in a small channel.

Take and take the cable off at the back ,where ever it is hooked ,and then see how it moves easy ,I will
bet your cable is rusted inside.If that isn't it , you may be out of fluid,and it's not easy to fill .You may half to buy a manual for it , and as a matter of fact i have one i was going to put on ebay . It is a CLYMER VOLVO PENTA stern Drive Shop Manual
from 1994 -2000 IT's like new.I bought it and never used it . I want $35.00 + shipping about $7.oo .
So email me at theclockmann@aol.com and let me know.
