    Brass tubing

    I receive my 9/32 brass tube with Teflon liner, I see that the stock were bend, do I have to do this also on the new one?
    Sharing is the best thing to do on EARTH legally.

    You should. I bent mine straight, then put a gradual curve in the whole thing. It came with a fairly tight bend about a third of the way towards the rear. The bend keeps the shaft from having to make an abrupt turn before exiting the hull and entering the strut.
    To the men and women of the US military, thank you

    Yes. The stock tube is bent for a reason. Match the stock tube and you should have no issues


    Beatings will continue until compliance is gained

    I ran one boat all summer with the stock bend and the other boat with a straight tube. I have several hundred runs between both boats. No difference. As long as the strut is in proper alignment with the brass tube coming out everthing runs great. I grease every two runs and both cables are always clean and in good shape.
