• How to Measure Boat Control Cables

    Measure Twice. Order Once.

    For Replacement of Existing Cables:
    If you removed the old cable, measure for replacement cable as follows:Measure from tip to tip and round up to the next foot, if necessary (aftermarket cables are sold in foot increments).

    The control cable part number contains its length. Teleflex cables are usually listed as CC???XX, where XX = length in feet. For Example: Part Number CCX63320 = 20 ft. CCX633 Control Cable.



    For a New Installation or Missing Cables: Measure cable routing path from control head attachment point to engine connection, as follows: For Outboards: Measure from control along unobstructed cable routing to center of outboard. Add four feet to allow for loop which provides unrestricted engine movement. Round up to the next foot and order required cable part number. (Last two digits of cable part number equal cable length in feet.) For Inboards & Sterndrives: Measure from control along unobstructed cable routing to shift and/or throttle connection. Round this dimension up to the next foot and order required cable part number.



    This information is from the Teleflex Marine catalog which can be found on our site. Most Teleflex products are available for purchase through The Teleflex Online Catalog or in our Boat Accessories sections.

    Re: Mercury Black Max XR2 150HP won’t rev out

    I had time to watch the first video. Sounds like it's hit/ miss on a cylinder or two. I suggest examine spark plugs closely. You may find the problem

    Yes sir. Very available. I have one here in my shop too, found it in a scrap load going to the recycling. Mint, but missing one side cover.

    Excellent. So skeg busted when trailering? Remember....welding specialty stuff like this is 50 percent welding and 50 percent "artwork". Remember

    They fit nice and snug as is but I might trim them a bit as they are very snug👍

    Timguy,
    Thanks for taking time to reply. All good suggestions. It's pretty much broken entirely off, no more than an inch from prop shaft housing.
