    Damn fine old OMC.
    But I don't deserve her.
    In a hurry to go fishing and ran over a rock.:eek: Moral: Go to work instead!

    Anyhow,its done and I have replaced the prop, but the ride guide steering is only good for circles! The shaft going thru the o/b mount bracket appears bent. I straightened the tie rod. Can the cable end rod be straightened? or is there a cheap 'n cheerful remedy?
    Ride guide are no longer I believe?
    Any advice to get fishing appreciated!
