                  Comments about Davis Instruments Cable Buddy Steering Cable Lubrication System:

                  I installed this on a 16 ft bowrider. Since the steering cable on this boat goes through a hole in the cap,I had to remove the motor ro install the nut. It is also necessary to use thread tape on the nut before drilling the hole since if you do not the nut leaks. This was not even mentioned in the instructions but definately should have been. The lubrication does free up the cable but without sealing the nut it makes a mess. With a few improvements (sealer included and better instructions) this could be a great product

                  • Q:

                    I have a 16 FT 1986 Bayling Capri Bowrider with a 85 HP Force outboard. The steering is a Telflex rack and pinion no feedback system, similar to your SS151, which I purchased from Overton's to replace to orginal system which stiffened up. Now this steering system is stiffing up and has become hard to steer.

                    Will the Cable Buddy product help to correct this problem?
                    How do you mount the lube collar on the cable?

This system will prevent corrosion, freezing up, and wear and tear on you steering system in the future. This system may not be the best thing for a steering system that has already tightened up and is not as free as it once was.

If you have any further questions or concerns please contact us here at Overton's at 1-888-OVERTON and any of our Technical Product Specialist will be glad to assist you.
