How do I get at the steering post bottom to get at the tie rod end to adjust it? Narrowed down the slop in my steering to the post. By holding and clamping the ski movement plate I still have slop in the steering post. So somewhere from the post to the end of the post tie rod I have about an inch of slop in my steering. I've heard of the cotter pin at the bottom of the post going bad. Just need to know how to get there to look. Belly pan off? Probably. Just looking for any tricks of the trade. Thanks.

Its probably the plastic bushings in the steering post they wear out Im sure you cab replace it from underneath. I've always replaced em when I had the motor out...

May have explained wrong...slop as in the post doesn't move, rather I can move the handle bars as though I'm steering with about an inch of play back and forth. How do I get at it without taking motor out?

only can get to the top one with engie in from top
if you pull the belly pan you can get to the bottom one
but that is not probly the most worn part
the steering rod end connected to the steering post is usally bad
the other end and the bushings washers at the bell crank
all easier to get to if engine is out
