Hello,
I just purchased my first boat on Monday, a 1988 Chris Craft 17' run-about. It has a 3.0L mercruiser stern drive. I started it last night (with the hose to it) and when I turned the steering wheel (and only when I would turn the wheel) it made a sound like it needed power steering fluid, It was not in gear. I pulled the cover and there is no power steering pump. There does not seem to be anything missing off the front of the motor. Any Ideas on what this sound is? Thanks in advance for any info.

Hello Chayes, does it sound like a belt is slipping or is it a chatter?
