Re: First time Posting! Need guidance with New 2019 E-TEC 135HO setup on 2000 Lund Mr. Pike 17

Rick,

The E-TEC I have has the plane wing skeg. It also has a spot under the AV plate that has a blanker plate on it that is the exact position and size of a trim tab. I don’t have access to the boat currently it’s 130 miles away to see if the plate is removable.

Rick & Bill,

 

Thanks for the tips and suggestions...  I will update the thread after my day at the dealer next week to let you know how it went.

Welcome Kevin.  I added no feedback steering a few years ago and it helped.  I’m very happy with it. Very simple to install and low cost. You probably do have a tab that you can install to help with torque steer.  Your new motor is a completely different animal. It will take a few days to adjust to the difference   Also Your rig looks very nice..

Thanks Realfun. My budget this year is blown on the new motor and a new Top Gun travel cover so steering replacement will have to wait till next year. I will probably go NFB or hydraulic if I can.

Kevin all that needs to change is the helm portion of the system. 130$ plug n play. Sea star nfb 4.2  . I hope this helps.
