  There has to be tension on the spring..
  Posted by: Jackl on Jan-20-13 5:30 AM (EST)

so the rudder will deploy when you release the line from it's keeper.
Pull the round knob out a tad, (so the little peg is out of it's hole) and then rotate it clockwise until you feel some tension and then push it back in making sure the peg is seated .
It is a trial and error thing until you get the proper tension on it.

Over the years I have had way too many problems with our Smart track rudders, and vowed I will never have another boat with one.
