All of the 3/4" steering shafts I've seen are tapered and most of the 1" shafts are straight. Is that the situation with yours?

Edson Marine used to make a bushing for this but I couldn't find it on their website. Give them a call on Monday. I bet they still make them.

Edson Marine A-459 adapter is what I used on my Capilano 250 steering for the same thing. Here is a link to their PDF chart.........

There are sleeves made in many common sizes to convert 3/4 to 1, etc. It comes as a sleeve with the key way gap and with an 1/8" or taller key as needed. I went from 1" to 1-1/4" on this boat.
A good machine shop will either have the sleeves, know where to get them or make one.
