    Scratch & Dent Special: Customer return due to wrong length - Some scratching on jacket

    One style of cable fits most Teleflex Rotary Steering Systems from 1968 to present. The SSC61 Series cables will replace the SSC62 and SSC72 Series cables. If you have a Safe-T-QC (Quick Connect), NFB (No Feedback), Safe-T QC (Threaded Spigot) or Big-T System, the SSC61 will replace them all. Choose your correct cable length, in feet.*

    * Determining Proper Steering Cable Length

    • Replacing an Existing Steering Cable:
      • The cable part number and length can usually be found about 2 feet from the helm connection
        • Stamped into the plastic conduit (exterior jacket or casing)
          • If you can't locate/read it, proceed to the next step
      • Determine what Type of cable is being Replaced
        • Rotary (spiral wrapped black core wire sticks out at helm end of cable)
        • Rack and Pinion (Cable has long metal housing with rack [flat] gear inside)?
      • Measure the Existing Cable as Follows:
        • First Measure the cable’s plastic jacket (casing) in inches
          • Rotary Style: Add 18” (Round up to the next foot)
          • Rack & Pinion Style: Add 30” (Round up to the next foot)
    • First-Time Steering Cable Installation
      • Measure Cable Routing Path in Boat as Follows:
        • A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (inches)
        • B = Dash to transom (inches)
        • C = Gunwale to cable connection at centered tiller (inches)
      • For Tilt Tube Mounting
        • Add A, B & C + 6”, then round up to the next whole foot
        • Order that length cable
      • For Transom / Splash-well Stringer Support Mounting
        • Add A, B & C, then subtract 6” and round up to the next whole foot
        • Order that length of cable.
