HOW TO MEASURE A NEW STEERING CABLE

Once you have selected the Steering System, it is now required to measure the length of the required Steering Cable. Each boat has a specific requirement of Cable length which depends on the length of the boat and the routing of the cable.

The required Steering Cable length should be measured as below

Measure the dimensions: A, B, and C in centimetres.
Ascertain how many 90 degree bends does the cable have in the routing.
Ascertain whether the cable installation is:
Through Engine Tilt Tube
Transom Support
Splash well mounting

Use the following method for calculating the Steering Cable Length

For Installation through Engine Tilt Tube: (Diagram 1)
Add dimensions A + B + C
Subtract 10 cm from the above total for each 90 degree bend in the cable routing
Add 30.5 cm to the above figure You have the required length of the Steering Cable in centimeter. If you wish to order in foot, divide the above by 30.5 and round the figure to next foot.
Example

If A = 100 cm, B = 200 cm, C = 60 cm. Assume there are two 90 degree bends in the routing. The length of the required cable shall be: 100 + 200 + 60 = 360. Subtract 20 cms on account of two 90 degree bends 360 -20 = 340. Add 30.5 on account of Tilt tube installation 340 + 30.5 = 370.50 cms. For cable length in foot : 370.5 / 30.5 = 12.14 Round o_ = 13 foot

For Transom Support & Splash well Mounting installation: (Diagram 2 & 3)
Add dimensions A + B + C
Subtract 10 cm from the above total for each 90 degree bend in the cable routing, You have the required length of the Steering Cable in centimeter. If you wish to order in foot, divide the above by 30.5 and round the figure to next foot.
Example

If A = 100 cm, B = 200 cm, C = 60 cm. Assume there are two 90 degree bends in the routing. The length of the required cable shall be: 100 + 200 + 60 = 360. Subtract 20 cms on account of three 90 degree bends Subtract 10 cm from the above total for each 90 degree bend in the cable routing 360 – 20 = 340 cm. For cable length in foot: 340 / 30.5 = 11.14 Round o_ = 12 foot.

 

Note: It is advised to consult a qualified technician while selecting, installing or servicing the Steering System on your boat.
