    Default Loose steering

    Went out surfing for about 3 hours and the steering felt sloppy again and after investigating the rudder link opened up again .
    1\8 play in the bushing gave me about 1-1\2 in the wheel I think it needs to be welded so it doesn't open .

    I wonder if there is just a smaller bushing that can be purchased to take up the slack??

    The bushing is built onto the bolt I'm thinking of getting it tack welded so it doesn't open

    I wonder if they just have a newer design out now that holds tighter that you get for cheap.

    Went out all day Sat. and didn't get a chance to look at mine yet. Wonder if a small clamp around the outside might work.

    FYI, pulling boat and taking to the dealer to try and resolve the "loose steering" steering wheel backlash issue. I will post how it goes. Very frustrating!

    Is the end of the steering cable just a fixed pinned connection or does the cable end thread onto the cable?

    Is there packing material in the mechanical seal for the rubber as there is on the drive shaft seal? Could this be a contributing factor? Video on YouTube made some similar statements.
    I have these same issues and have a new steering cable and rack assembly which I am changing tonight on the 2003 Outback.
