Want to purchase our steering pins but aren’t sure about drilling and tapping your droop/nozzle adapter yourself? Have a JC bowl? Don’t have easy access to a machine shop to aid in the modification? Here is your solution!
Our steering pins are changing the market in a big way, making your steering smoother, safer, and more reliable. This simple addition will make a noticeable difference in the drivability of your boat.
Our new drill jig allows you to easily make the modification/s to your droop or nozzle adapter or JC bowl without the need for specialized equipment.
Simply slide the drill jig into the steering pin hole in the nozzle adapter/droop/bowl, put the stringer washer, washer, and nut on the bottom side, orient the drill jig, tighten it down, then just drill and tap.
The jig features 2 countersunk holes and 2 different sized bushings, one for the drill and one for the tap.
- Drill your first hole
- Rotate to the tap bushing and tap your first hole
- Rotate one of the countersunk holes to your first hole, install one of the provided 10-32 screws
- Drill your second hole
- Rotate the tap bushing to the second hole, re install the 10-32 screw to your first hole
- Tap the second hole
- Repeat this process for the remaining two holes.
This process ensures that your holes are not only in the right location for the pins, but also nice and straight.
