Here are some pics of my Honda
cables. On another post, I joined others in trying to find a way not to bind the cables when tilting the motor. I am still trying. I want to buy spare cables to keep handy when the cables break, and I know they will. I want the best cable
with the smallest bend radius and slickest internal movement, aka, less friction. That appears to be Teleflex CC633XX, where XX means the feet in length of the cable
. My boat is not new to me, so the shift cable
may not be OEM, and the throttle cable
I installed last year after the last failure. Teleflex's website
, and of their distributors, seem to be pushing the CC633XX as the premium universal replacement for a whole lot of old cables, but does not specifically say the premium cable
will work for a Honda
My question for anyone here is:
1. Can I replace the CC172XX Teleflex universal standard cable
on my throttle (that many boats use) with a premium CC633XX?
2. Can I replace the 301947 Morse-Teleflex red jacketed standard cable
with the premium CC633XX?
Although, many distributor web sites seem to say yes, you can see in the pic that the cable
holder/sheaths in the engine are of different lengths.
Here is the pic of the cables and another pic of the upcoming failure point.
