SERVICING YOUR OUTBOARD MOTOR

TRIM TAB ADJUSTMENT

The trim tab compensates for
''torque steer,'' which is a reaction of
the outboard motor to propeller
rotation.
If uncompensated, torque steer would
make the outboard motor tend to turn
to one side.
When the trim tab is correctly
adjusted, steering effort is equal in
either direction.
If steering effort is unequal, loosen
the trim tab bolt and adjust the angle
of the trim tab. Retighten the trim tab
bolt securely.

running at cruising speed.
