After a quick look at the diaphragm, it appears to be the same procedure as most of the Teleflex controls.

Have your cell phone (or other camera) handy. Take pictures so you won't forget anything. Unless there's lots under your helm, you will want to remove the top cover and then unfasten the works from the top of the helm. This makes it much easier to disconnect the cables. On many installations there won't be enough slack in the cables to pull the works above the helm. To overcome this, first disconnect the engine and transmission connections and any clamps holding the cables between the engine room and the helm. I can't stress enough, take lots of pictures before you start disconnecting stuff. When you work on the helm control, do only one cable at a time (less parts to loose and confuse). When you disconnect one cable, you should be able to pull the new one through by taping it to the old cable.

Good Luck!
