    Chris, if you'll post up in the "Outboard Repair" section Bubba will probably have some info for you. I'd imagine at the very least you'd need a steering cable and wheel and the steering arm on the motor to do it. Good luck,

    They didn't make a conversion kit for remote steering for those little sixes but you can do some research and see where some have used cable steering to added to those. You may be able to find a cable steering on e-bay. But now keep in mind that cable steering wasn't all that safe to use.
