    Default Help on installation of sea star steering cylinder on my 1990 Sea Ray twin rudder

    I am installing a new 125x7-ATM cylinder. Steering to port works perfectly. Steering to starboard does not. The arm in the cylinder hits the starboard rudder when the rudder position is centered and won't allow movement past that point.
    I have a 1990 Sea Ray 390 express cruiser with twin engines. Any ideas?

    First thing that comes to mind- is it installed 'backward'? Not hard to do! A couple photos would really help though, it's difficult to diagnose problems like this without seeing the issue. I bet the suggestions will pour in once you post a photo or two.
