Hi folks. Need a little help. I have a 79 mercury
9.8 (110) that has been sitting for a long time . I only use it as a spare. Needed to use it and tuned it up, brought it out runs great BUT the damn thing will not turn. It takes an incredible amount of effort to turn it.
I have loosened up the friction screw and have worked it back and forth, put new grease in and even took a hair dryer to the outside of the steering
screw to loosen up the old grease, all to no avail.
Any suggestions? The motor
runs great and is tight so i do not want to trash it.
