Just pick up a '98 Bass Tracker 16w/ '98 Force 40hp. Motor will steer completely to the right to make a tight turn, but turning left, motor will only turn slightly because rod is all the way in the tube. Unhooked steering arm and centered motor and steering wheel and it seems like the steering arm is too short by about
1-1/2" inches. The arm is 11". Do I need a longer one? Or is there another adjustment? Thanks!
