I've got a '99 Elite V. Has the Teleflex tilt steering column. There is slack in the steering, and the cavitation from the prop feeds up through the steering cable and into the helm, causing vibration and a terrible racket.


The steering cable from the rudder to the helm is brand new and tight as can be. The gear box from the end of the steering cable to the tilt unit is a solid shaft, also tight as can be.

Inside the tilt mechanism, there is a tiny bit of slop in the articulating unit. I've torn it apart and have found that the two black bearings (lack of a better term) are slightly worn and are where the slop is being introduced.


Hoping to find just the bearings and housing (see pics) and not have to replace the entire helm unit ($300). Teleflex part number 9102717. Anybody have a spare, or know a shop that stocks these things?
