I have a 97 stratus 201PE with a 225 johnson. I broke a steering cable today and the helm is also bad. What is the best option to replace them? Should I go hydraulic? What do you guys think?

Do I remove this threaded rod? One of the old steering cables went through this? Also on second picture do I use the spacers provided to fill the gap on both sides?

Yes and there should be a nut with an allen head locking plug that goes behind that arm with the large nut. http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/use...l_296784-AO.pdf

The job was pretty easy. Got a great deal on the kit with hoses for 889.00 shipped. Had it the day after I ordered. I used the 16 ft hoses on my 20 ft stratus.. No tilt helm.
