Teleflex Control Cables Overview

Technical Reference Manual

Teleflex Marine makes engine control cables for a wide variety of applications. We recommend their use with our controls as well as in engine manufacturers' control systems.

We offer three grades of cable: standard, midrange and TFXTREME.

Three Performance Grades:

TFXTREME control cables can be used in any boat. They are by far the best choice for long runs, twin stations or other difficult routings with multiple cable bends.

Midrange cables are recommended for somewhat longer cable routings and heavier use than their standard counterparts.

Standard cables are suitable for most applications with short, simple cable routings.

Four Application Types:

OEM Replacement Type
Teleflex offers a direct replacement cable for almost every engine manufacturer's control. Most of our OEM type cables are available in both standard and TFXTREME versions.

Universal (3300/33C) Type
Universal (or 3300/33C) type throttle/shift control cables are direct replacements for many boats using aftermarket controls or most engine manufacturer's controls with the correct adapter kit. Universal 3300/33C cables can be connected to most engines. These cables are offered in all three grades: standard, midrange and TFXTREME.

Universal (4300/43 6400/64) Types
Heavy duty universal type control cables are available in TFXTREME versions only. These are drop-in replacements for Morse 43C, 43BC, 64C and 64BC and other similar cables.

Jet Boat Gate Control Cables Three styles of drive-specific jet boat gate control cables are available, for Mercury Sport Jet 90 and early 120s, Sport Jet 175s and OMC Turbo Jet. Our TFXTREME 43BC cable is used on most other popular jet drives. Replacement throttle control cables are generally an OEM or 3300/33C Universal type.

Teleflex Marine control cables meet or exceed all industry standards/certification requirements and OEM specifications for fit, function, reliability and quality. They are built with marine grade, corrosion-resistant materials and feature either TFXTREME premium core construction or Lubri-Core lifetime internal lubrication.
