Mercruiser 3.0L sterndrive steering frozen.

My 1996 Mercruiser 3.0 liter LX (installed on Bayliner Capri) had frozen steering when returned to water after winter storage. All fluids are ok and engine recently tuned. Any suggestions on how to unfreeze steering? Please help, all suggestions welcome.

Well the first thing you have to do is isolate where the problem is. If you disconnect the steering cable from the steering arm at the transom plate (behind the engine) you will be able to tell if the problem is the lower unit or more then likely the steering cable. Find that out and well go from their also does your boat have power steering.MIKE
