  • 1987 50ETLJ tiller steering friction

    I recently bought a 1987 Crestliner 16 Nordic with a 50 Yamaha tiller. Both seem in good shape considering their age. I received a Yamaha manual, but the copyright date is 1983 and my model is not listed as one of the 4 motors covered in the manual. My question is about how to adjust the steering friction on this model. The manual I have points to an adjusting bolt on the swivel bracket, but there is no bolt that I can see on my motor. Any help would be appreciated as the motor flops back and forth at low speeds and requires constant monitoring. High speed is no problem, as the trim tab stabilizes at speed.
