How To Measure

How to Measure Steering Cables “Measure Twice. Order Once.”

Replacement of Existing Cable: If possible, find the part number stamped on the plastic jacket of the old cable. If you removed the old cable, measure for the replacement cable as follows:


For Rotary Steering Cable Replacement, Measure Existing Cable as follows: Measure plastic cable jacket (“Y” dimension, shown in above drawing) in inches, add 18″, and round up to next foot. Order that length cable.


New Installation: Measure cable routing path from wheel center line to engine connection, as follows: A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (or deck, if routed downward), B = Dash to transom, C = Gunwale to centerline of cable connection at centered tiller.

For Cable Installations through the Engine Tilt Tube: Add A, B & C + 6″, then round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.

For Cables Mounted to Transom, Splashwell or Stringer: Add A, B & C, then subtract 6″ and round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
