how hard will it be to convert my outboard from tiller to remote?
What will I need to do this?

I know someone out here has to know....

It's a 2010 30hp Tohatsu/Nissan 4 stroke.

thanks.

I've heard it is not very cost efficient to convert but here is a link to your parts catalog. You may be able to judge for yourself by comparing the different parts on a tiller vs. remote setup. Not much help here but it could be a start... :)

I know you have the mechanicical skills needed Eric,
so if you have the time and money it's not that hard.
figures #15, 17, 18 and 21 cover the parts involved

That seems to do the trick!
Thanks!
Not getting any offers on the outboard so I might just go with this option until I can afford to replace it with a 40hp.
I figure if I buy the helm and steering cables and steering wheel now or later make no difference.

Now if I can get it at a dealer price..... lol

I did this recently for a 20 HP Tohatsu. Figure about $300 for the steering link and cables. A no-feed back steering for the one I did cost $157 plus $11.80 shipping without a wheel.

It adds up, but it sure is nice when making a long run in cold or rough condidions.

Best regards,

I'm considering this as an option.
But after dodging many storms, I really wish I had an extra 10 horses hanging on the back.
I just don't know if I could afford that anytime soon.
This outboard is just a year old.
And no one is showing any interest in purchasing it, so who knows.
I may hang it on the back of my Gheenoe Classic. :D
