    While son in law was pulling grandkids around lake on towable he noticed difficulty turning left to port. No problem making full turn right to starboard. When he came back to boathouse I checked the play of the steering wheel. Turns fully right but only a short way left then stops.
    I will be pulling the jet boat out of the water in a few weeks. Still recovering from surgery and not supposed to lift anything plus I can’t get into the lake while incision is healing (and the water is 63F!!) Things I plan to do:
    1. Check to see if nozzle turns freely left and right.
    2. Check as much as possible the steering cable for wear or breaks.
    3. Check helm under dash for cable movement and any interference keeping it from moving to the left.
    4. Check nozzle and gate to see if stepped on while trying to get back into boat after falling off tube! Possible jamming of cable connection!

    The boat is 23 years old. I just replaced the control shift cable and controller a few months ago so I am not surprised if the steering cable and helm went bad!

    Any additional suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

    I will update when I have more information!

    680EA659-3EA1-45A8-878A-944E127C87FB.jpeg I’m trying to determine the part number of my Teleflex jet boat helm. I cannot read the stamp on the unit that says Teleflex. It has 135 and 270 stamped into the metal between the arrow that rotates when the steering wheel is moved. Does anyone know if the arrow is pointing to 270 is the helm a Teleflex 270 helm?
    Thanks,
    Ski

    6F8BD294-7728-439A-80D3-BD95C8A12326.jpeg I obtained this snapshot from a video I took while turning the steering wheel. On zoom you can see the arrow pointing to 135. The manufacturer confirmed that the helm is an old Teleflex SH5087P 135 helm. It is now a JBS Helm.
    Keep you posted!
