I have been admiring Tom Harden's restoration of a 1971 13-sport. http://continuouswave.com/whaler/cetacea/cetaceaPage57.html
I am working on my own 1976 13-sport. Tom is quoted that "the Teleflex stand-off bracket installation that is needed with the notched transom."
My 1976 does not have the notched transom. I have a 1981 35hp Evinrude. I intend to install Teleflex steering. Do I need the same Teleflex stand-off?

No standoff bracket needed. You need an outboard with a 20" shaft. You can use tilt tube mounting, which is better because the engine can be tilted without interference from or danger of bending the steering rod.

I have the notched, 15" transom on my 1972 Sourpuss 13' but I will be mounting the engine on a CMC manual jackplate with 4" of setback and 7" of vertical lift. Do I need the standoff bracket to install teleflex steering? Or should I forget teleflex steering all together and look into hydralic steering?

[Technical aside: I had to edit this post to remove three very strange characters from the initial post.
Instead of an apostrophe ('), the poster used the non-ASCII character sequence (,Äôs).
Instead of a simple double quote ("), the poster used the non-ASCII character sequence (‚Äú), probably open-curly-quotes.
Instead of a simple double quo;te ("), the poster used the non-ASCII character sequence (‚Äù), probably closed-curly-quotes.
In entering text into text entry fields, such as is done then posting messages to the forum, it is necessary to enter the text in the same character set as will be used when the page is served or rendered by the browser. Unfortunately, the HTML for the forum pages does not specify the character set, so it should not be assumed to be anything but ASCII. If you enter text using extended character set sequences, you can get very unanticipated results. --jimh]

I believe the need for a special bracker arises in the case of the 13-foot hull with notched transom because of the curved design.
If the usual tilt-tube actuator were used, the notch in the transom and the curve of the transom would combine so as to create interference for the mounting of the steering actuator.
On the 13-foot hulls without a transom notch this problem does not manifest, as least as far as I can deduce from looking at the situation.

See http://continuouswave.com/whaler/cetacea/cetaceaPage56.html for your answer. [No, you do not need the special bracket.]
