Default Verado Rigging Tube

I have twin ‘07 225 Verados and the rigging tube on the Starboard motor has worked itself out and will not pop back in place. Is there a trick to getting it to lock in place or am I gonna have to replace it? Is there anything I could do to make it stay in place without making it look like too bad?

Is the word ‘Top’ that is printed on the adaptor pointing up?

While de-rigging a Vrod is not really that difficult given the electronic controls, I would at least consider placing some clear epoxy glue on the top and bottom of that internal flange and seeing if you can glue that piece back in. If there is concern about the epoxy running onto the cables just place a thin towel around them and then fish them out on the outboard side.

If it keeps popping out, make sure your rigging has the correct amount of slack, try replacing the piece (it's easy). Batteries off of course.

I wouldn't epoxy it in there, that would really be a pain if it had to come out later.

once you have it replaced, take some photos of your setup trimmed down and all the way up. Some manufactures reccomend turning hard to port prior to raising the motors to avoid stress points like this.

Put a few wraps of electrical tape on it and shove it back in.

Thanks guys. I guess I’ll just wrap it with tape for the weekend and hope it holds in place. With the engine being a Gen I, can I still get the parts needed to fix this and if so, exactly which ones?

Looking at again I can see it is barely threaded on there. Spin it down several more turns, get more of the rigging tube into the engine cowling. Confirm "UP" is correct. This will help it expand a hair and grab better. That may just do the trick.

Pretty sure threading the tube on more worked. I tugged pretty hard on it and it wouldn’t pull out. I’ll know after this weekend. Thanks for the tip V12!!

i was gonna say if that didn't work run 3 or 4 drywall screws through it,, that'll fix it good.
