Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
I am not sure I follow what you are asking, can you be a little more detailed?
Also having the engine model number will greatly assist me.
The tiller handle is fixed in terms of left/right, left/right movement turns motor, tiller handle only pivots up/down, and thus my confusion.
