    I call them equalizers, I suppose others call them ballasts. They are there to keep an even pressure delivered to the dash-mounted speedometers, important back in the day when boat driving in tournaments was an important skill. If you think your speedos are accurate don't worry about it. (I always check mine with GPS on my phone) If your equalizers are plugged up they can be bypassed, I doubt you would notice the difference. I know I wouldn't. FWIW, when my wife drives me skiing I always tell her to watch the tachometer, not the speedometers. Good luck!

    Miss Rita I didn’t know ballasts was what they were called. So as long as my speedo are working, don’t worry about it?

    well, I'm not sure. I removed, lubed, and replaced the rudder the fall of that year, but it was too late to try it on the water. I sold the boat the following spring (two years ago), so I never had a chance to try it out. I now have a '92 PS 205 that steers just fine.

    If the steering on the '89 remained stiff I would have replaced the steering cable; a common fix.

    How did your project work out with the tight steering? I just got a 1989 Tristar 220 and you need to be an Avenger to turn the wheel to the left under power on the lake.
