The steering cable is totally frozen on this old boat although the steering box still turns OK. The cable is slightly over 10' long from where it attaches to the steering box back to the clevis attachment at the motor. There is about 1 1/2' of inner cable that winds around inside the steering box. There are no numbers or names on these parts. Do you order a replacement by length?

There should be a number on the steering cable itself
This might help?

I think I can make out T10 6 FT W8 on the cable. The shroud burst right at the number. 10 1/2 ft long? What is W8?

I think it is a rotary type. It winds a cable around in it and there is plastic tube attached for overflow. Can I post a picture here?
