Shift cable

Need a new shift cable for my 2003 30' Pilot II. I know it's a long shot but wondering if anyone knows the length. I would like to have the new cable in hand and use the old cable as a snake to pull it through. thanks

regards Holty

Morse 33? If so, length in ft is marked a couple feet from the end.

I think all cable manufacturers mark the length of the cable. Morse/Teleflex/Seastar mark them in inches. For example if you see 144 on the cable it’s 12 feet long.

By the way, Seastar was just bought by Dometic.

Pull the old cable out with a piece of either nylon rope or 10 gauge wire attached to it. Then pull the new cable in with the rope or the wire.

Thanks guys. I thought about the rope deal but wanted to make it a one shot project. I will look for measurement markings.

Pull the throttle quadrant and disconnect at the tranny, then pull the broken inner cable out of both ends of the housing. Measure the two pieces for your length. I did this a month ago and nailed it on the first order from Amazon.

It was under $50 for a 16 ft cable. The installation was completed in a couple of hours solo.

The ss core of these control cables make an excellent electrical snake. Has just the right amount of stiffness and is a smaller profile than a "real" elect snake.
