How to Measure Control Cables
"Measure Twice. Order Once."
For a New Installation:
Measure cable routing path from control head
attachment point to engine connection, as follows:
Measure from control along unobstructed cable
routing to center of outboard. Add four feet to
allow for loop which provides unrestricted engine
move ment. Round up to next whole foot and order
required cable part number. (Last two digits of cable
part number equal cable length in feet.)
Inboards & Stern Drives:
Measure from control along unobstructed cable routing to shift and/or throttle connection. Round this dimension off to the next whole foot and order required cable part number. (Last two digits of cable part number equal cable length in feet.)
For Replacement of Existing Cable:
If you removed the old cable, measure for replacement cable as follows:
Measure from tip to tip and round up to next
whole 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. Morse cables are listed as
??????-??-XXX.0, where XXX.0 = length in inches.
Part Number CC63320 = 20 ft. CC633 Control Cable or Part Number 032377-03-240.0 = 20 ft. 33C Control Cable (240" = 20')
