I just installed a new servo. I have full steering the left and nothing to the right. I lined up the timing before I installed the new. Any suggestions?

Start over. Horn/arm removed from the servo. Radio ST trim at Zero/Neutral. Servo must be powered ON when setting the arm back onto the servo spline. The only way to know the servo is precisely centered.
Place arm back on, wheels being straight..
Tell us what happened.

If all works out, then you MUST set your Steering Endpoints next!!!

Thank you! I’ll give that a try.

What the best way to set the end points?

Sorry, I’m new the RC game.

Need your radio's Manual.
Take your time with this procedure. So you understand it and is done correct.
If you don't, this can brick the servo. Once set properly, forget it. It's done. Just do it right once the first time.

Don't ya HATE when you install a new servo, set everything perfectly to 0 and go to install the horn and its one fuggin spline away from straight either way!? That really burns my arsee..

Some tx/rx have trim AND subtrim, not sure why but they do. May be sub is more granular?

I swapped the receiver from one car to another and forgot to zero out the trim. That took a while to figure out.

Also the Dual Rate (D/R) can do a number on you if you don't reset it.

Anyways check all you steering related settings and make sure they are '0'.
