Question

I am replacing the cable steering system on an 11' 199 Boston Whaler. I've been told that I need an 11 foot cable, is that correct? Additionally, can I use my existing steering wheel or do I need to replace it?

Asked on 07/27/2016 by Matt Boyle

Top Answer

Matt, when I replaced my cable I looked at the numbers printed on it first. Mine had the cable length as part of the model number still visible and it was the original from 2005. A quick Google search of the model number yielded the correct replacement cable length. If you can't read this on yours, I suggest removing it and measuring it to be sure. When you pull it, make sure to use a good follower pull cord/rope so you can pull the new cable back to the helm. I was able to use my existing steering wheel which is a standard 3/4" tapered center mounting shaft with a small "key" to hold it in place (locks it to the shaft for turning left/right). The new shaft was the same size/shape as my old so it was a perfect fit. Total install time including removal of the old cable was about 1 hour. It's an easy project. Good luck. JB

Answer

You should be able to use your existing steering wheel. Go to their website to understand how to order the correct length if it is not legible on your existing cable

Answer

When I did mine, I determined the length from the numbers on the original cable. The same length in the new cable was a tad shorter (6" longer would have been better). I had to change the helm to be compatible with the new cable ends. My original Teleflex cable was threaded, the new is retained by bolts. Used my original steering wheel after I destroyed the original helm on order to remove it. I operate my 1999, 18' center console Wellcraft in saltwater and parts tend to corrode together after 20yrs. Length formulas and videos are available from this web site.

Answer

I used my existing steering wheel. As for the length, that depends on the distance from your steering wheel gear box to the engine. There is a very specific way to gain the total measurement and it is outlined on this website and the Teleflex site. I can say that it is an easy job and I am no mechanic.

Hello My existing cable says ssc6215 I am considering replacing it with a no feedback kit. Does anyone know if they are interchangable and which kit I should buy? Thank you in advance for your help

We replace the entire system, helm and all. Anything short of that is a mistake. It works great. I owned a Marina and this is all we used. Now that I am retired, and my friends ask me for help, this is again all I use. Make sure you order the correct helm. I have seen people order racks and find out they don't have the room under the dash. Just put one in a antique outboard for a friend in our club, steers like a dream. Building a custom mahogany runabout, putting hydraulic steering in that. Can't wait to see how that steers.

I have a 1960 13 foot whaler with a 30 horse yamaha 1987 I think. I am removing the cable steering and wondering if there is something I need to convert engine to teleflex. also can I use the old steering wheel

Asked on 04/21/2020 by matthew from Vermont

Top Answer

Most 13' Whalers use a Teleflex Safe T QC steering system with a 9' cable that connects directly to the tilt tube on the engine. However some of the earlier Whalers had a lower transom height that prevents the cable from connecting to the tilt tube. If you have that version, you should call tech support as you'll need a shorter cable and some extra brackets.

Question

I have an older 13' Boston Whaler, hull #22903. That seems to correspond to 1967. It has a side console and the old cable & pulley steering, linked to a 2008 Yamaha 25hp outboard. The cable recently snapped and I'd like to replace it with a modern system. I'm looking for guidance on a replacement helm and the appropriate Teleflex system for my boat. I can also provide measurements and photos as required.

Question

does this have a 3/4 tapered shaft???????????

Asked on 06/03/2015 by john combes

Top Answer

Yes it does. It also has the key-way slot (about 1"). It was an exact match for my original 2005 Teleflex unit installed on a 2005 Angler 204 which has a very plain steering wheel. It is not smooth not splined or grooved. Cheers.
