How long is the cable provided with the kit? do not see were I can specify...will replace the same on 17' center console Aquasport '76
Use the dropdown arrow next to the price and select the right size cable length. You measure the cable by measuring the black jacket length, add 18" and round up to the next foot.

I need to replace my teleflex safe-t mechanical helm. I cant see any date or modle number. How do i chose a direct replacement the rest of h esystem seems ok.I need this replacement ASAP as this is a working boat and needs to get back on the water.I can send photos of the unit as it is out of the boat
This kit would replace the Safe - T you have, you need to measure the black plastic, add 18" and round up to the next foot for the length.
Make sure it's for your boat
When I installed it I turned the boat left it went right. I reversed the cable and drilled new holes to secure the cable into the steering gear. Actually I didn't need a new gear because the cable would have worked with my old gear
Seems well built and easy to install
17' was the right length for my '81 Boston Whaler MontaukThanks
Fully met expectations for my 1980 13 ft. Whaler
Rehabbed a 13' classic Whaler with new mahogany and 2019 Yamaha F40. Telefax Safe-T II NFB installed perfectly using supplied template to cut and drill through new console. Cable is a bit stiff, but, careful installation planning made it easy to install. Sea trial was thrilling with new motor complimented by excellent steering control.

Put this on my Whaler and work well
This steering head is just as it says- no feedback. It takes a bit more force to turn than a no feedback, but the trade is well worth it to not have the wheel "drift". Paired with the Edson Power knob, the combo is easy to use. I would advise anyone replacing a steering head to purchase this. I would like to thank the salespeople at Jamestown, they are very knowledgeable with all their products.
