Hi Keith,

What is the exact part number / Model? (UC128-OBF ??)
Could you measure the movement to each side? I need to know how sharp my boat will turn compared to my Seastar ram.

Any idea if this can be fitted to my Seastar helm ?

Thanks

It turns the same as a sea Star Rsm there Should be no difference as my 250 turned full lock to lock they would do any V6 Mercury outboard no problem at all and yes it will work with your helm I think it's even got the same fittings I will have a look today and check

Information

The manual says 300 HP max 55 mph which is the same as any Seastar steering as they have to cover their arse on the speed 500 hp on twin installation counterrotating that has the same fro as a Seastar RAM he is a picture the RAM comes complete with every think you need and Seastar pipes are exactly the same fitment as I've just tried them hope this helps
