I'm going to buy a new steering cable and a new wheel soon. I saw a no feed back cable system in Overtons for about $180. Just looking for feedback and suguestions. Just so you know I have a 67 Nauset. Any help would be great.

Depends on how fancy you want to be. I have a 63 16ft and just replaced steering last year with the same rack and pin set up that was in there and did it myself. Alot has to do with what your powering the vessel with. Mines 90 hp evinrude.
There is a little pull prior to full plane with this sytem (and that powering) and what your looking at would more than likely take care of that problem. At cruising speeds the ole rack and pin sytem is as smooth as it can be.I think it ran about $120 at Boaters World and also teflex manufacturer.

I just installed a NFB steering yesterday, It went very smooth but it may be a little overkill, for my boat, because my new Honda has an adjustment to loosen or tighten up the steering (I don't know if that is a standard feature on most motors). $180 is a good price, I paid about $191 at West.

I purchased the rotary NFB quick connect for my Montauk (90hp Johnson). I am very pleased with its performance, and recommend it highly.

I just purchased a NFS system and will be installing it in a few weeks. Mine listed at cabale's for $165, plus $12 for shipping, which was more than just prompt. I'm, not sure if the Overton's price included shipping, if it doens't check Cabela's out, you might save a few dollars.
