Replacing throttle cable

I have to replace the throttle cable on my American Tug. The top mount/binnacle is a Teleflex CH5600 with two lever controls (throttle and transmission). In my case I will order a 3300 standard cable that is 20 feet in length.

While I have no problem attaching the cable to the cable lever on the engine, attaching the new cable to the control head at the helm scares the heck out of me. I have searched YouTube and the net for step by step directions with no luck.

Has anyone ever installed a new throttle cable that is connected to the Teleflex CH5600 control head? Is it as simple as attaching the new cable where the old one is? The control head looks complicated and I am not sure how to access the cable attachment site.
