My 35' Triton has triple Verado 275's on it. I'm trying to find an new helm tilt for my steering wheel. The shaft in rusted and the bearing is bad. I don't need the pump or the steering wheel. Just the tilt mechanism. I believe this is supplied by Mercury Racing.
I've purchased two of them and neither would fit. The shafts on both of them were smaller than the one I have. I called Mercury parts and they could not help. I hope someone on this forum has information on this.
The best way I can describe it is the steering wheel nut size. The ones I purchased both had a 1/2-20 thread size for the steering wheel nut.
The one I need has a 5/8-16 thread size.
Does anyone have any information that may help?

Update on the on the motor. Took it to a tech I trust here in NJ, number one coil bad. Went to Lake George NY this past weekend and it runs great. Fishing was a little slow but that's OK still a great trip.
Thanks CJ

The shift actuator has a calibration process that may need to be performed.  If someone ever removed it and didn't zip tie or otherwise lock in the shaft, it could rotate and move in or out (it's threaded).  What we've seen happen is that the acutator shaft is spun too far one way or the other, and when your in neutral, its very close to in gear.  This causes a fault message, but does not cause Guardian to kick in.  Your tech can call support or the newer Verado manuals cover the adjustment/calibration process.

Ohh so many thanks, i will give this info to the tech.

Best,

Rico

Have seen issues with VSR/ACRs causing low volt alarms and unexpected shutdowns when the joining bank is totally dead.  Prefer isolators for this, though they are less efficient.

I'd not be in a hurry to piece together the parts to rig your motor.  Used motor, sure.  The other stuff typically doesn't get yanked off a boat unless there is a good reason.

Check first with www.veradoclubparts.com - 888.231.2394 for pricing.  If this isn't something he does and you don't have a local dealer and if Glen okays it, I can help as a last resort.  Otherwise, I'll include MSRP as a starting point for you.

You will need dealer support to adapt the controls to the engine.  We are located in Alaska, and that creates a lot of remote/special situations.  I have had people send in their ECM and we program the controls and send the adapted package out.  Really, you want someone to do it onsite if possible.


Assuming you are looking for a slim binnacle type control:

1.) 8M0079498 RIGGING KIT - DTS - SLIM CONSOLE $1447.17
This kit includes Slim Console ERC, Command module kit, Four way junction box,
Boat harness to connect fuel tanks and paddle wheel and Accessory Power Relay
harness. The CAN pad features engine Start/Stop button, Dock mode button, Helm
transfer button, Throttle only button, and a Mercury global dimming button. The trim
function is located on the port handle.

2.) As you have a 2006 engine, you will need to swap out the command module with P/N: 891661T05.  $261.22

3.) Next you will need a harness of correct length to go from the motor to the helm controls.  The standard ones come in 6, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 40' lengths.  Apply the two digit length to this part number:
892451Txx $230+-

4.) The DTS system requires it's own power and harness to carry it.  You can run power to the junction box or to the engine.  As you have a single, I'll assume your batteries are near the motor.
Harness P/N: 8M0113732 is 15'  $77.79

5.)  If you motor is lacking battery cables, you can use P/N: 88439A50 - or make your own.  $83.00

6.)  The most basic instrumentation is the SmartTach SC1000.
8M0101097 w/ White Face (also available in black or grey face)  $394.15
859074 Black Bezel (also available in white or chrome trim)  $4.24
You may need a harness extension to reach your junction box, this is 8M0058668, (3' as I recall).  $27.02

7.)  There is a very nice rigging tube that screws into the engine and comes with a transom plate is 825191A03.  $49.25

8.)  Optionally, and highly recommended is the battery isolator kit:
8M0085595 - 120 amp Isolator  $149.80
898180K01 Installation Cabling Kit   $91.49

9.)  1000MCA AGM Battery, obtain locally $250ish

10.)  Power Steering System
892380K11  $1356.48
Complete Power Steering Rigging Kit that includes the Power Steering Module (12
ft. lead), Std 40 CM3 Helm and engine signal harness 20 ft. in length. Hoses need
to be ordered separately Cylinder to Helm kit and Power Module to Helm Kit.

The first kit is the pair that goes from the helm to the engine (or bulkhead fitting(s) and another set from bulkhead to engine).  Give me lengths and I'll give you part numbers.  They come by the foot from 3-8 and even numbers from 10-32.
$200+-

The second kit is the pair that go from the power steering module to the helm.  They come in up to 24', provide length and I'll get you a part number.
$150+-

Bulkhead fittings come in 0-3/4" 892517 and 3/4 to 3" 892518, 2 required per bulkhead.
$36.60ea

11.)  Propeller and hub kit.  Where possible I use a Quicksilver prop and add the hub kit.  Many of the Mercury props are available under a Quicksilver name for a few $ less.  The latest and greatest wheels are Mercury only, such as the Eco.  For example, the Enertia and Rev 4 are available as a Quicksilver Q3 or Q4 model designation, with reduced pitch, rotation combinations.  The Thunderbolt is a relabeled Mirage Plus and a good budget prop for heavier rigs.  The Silverado is an inexpensive option for light boats.

$630+-

Hope this helps.  We've really enjoyed using and working on Verados.  Many of our customers are conversions from gas/diesel sterndrives.  There are a number of commercial operators up here that run them and put 1200 hours a summer on them.  The boats have multiple captains and run multiple trips everyday, usually at 5,000rpm+.  Overall, they get used and abused and other than the occasional sensor or coil, run, run run.  One pre Gen5 units, they do need some occasional FSM work.  There are a number of them that have 4k+ hours and run fantastic.

Any advice for finding and purchasing controls? Found a good deal on an engine without controls so looking for any input on what exactly I need. Thinking of going the ebay route to try and save money but would also like advice on where to find the parts for a good price.
