Well I did a stupid thing last night and wonder if anyone has advice. I was out with my 7 yr grandson and when leaving after dark last night I left the TM down when loading on trailer. At first all I could find broken was the prop and the sonar transducer. Messing with it today it is very hard to steer with the foot pedal. I can turn the motor by hand and the pedal follows with no noise but when using the pedal I can't turn the motor. Any ideas what my problem might be?

Thanks, Wayne!!! You always have an answer for me and I appreciate it. I'm guessing the upper tube can be replaced??

New upper tube, new bearings and new transducer and all is well. Not as complicated as I assumed. Works like a champ again!!
