HOW TO MEASURE FOR NEW STEERING CABLE INSTALLATION:

 

Add the lengths of A + B + C together and subtract 4” (10 cm) for each 90° bend.
Add 12” (30,5 cm) for the engine tilt tube.
To order in foot length, round up to the nearest whole foot. 

   
TILT TUBE MOUNTING - Fig. 1
Example:
A (2.5’) + B (10.5’) + C (3’) = 16’
16’ - 8” (two 90° bends) = 15’4”
15’4” + 12” (tilt tube) = 16’4”
Round up to 17’ 
TRANSOM SUPPORT OR SPLASHWELL MOUNTING - Fig. 2-3
Example:
A (2.5’) + B (10.5’) + C (3’) = 16’
16’ - 8” (two 90° bends) = 15’4”
Round up to 16’ 

HOW TO MEASURE FOR REPLACEMENT STEERING CABLES:
ORDER LENGTH: “D” dimension + 22”and round up to the next whole foot
Example: D= 120” + 22” = 142” (11’8”). Round up to 12 ft
