    1980 260DA shift/throttle cables

    I need to replace the shift and throttle cables from the helm to the engines on my 260. Would anyone have an idea of the lengths of the cables or where I would find the lengths without tearing everything apart?

    The cables were mgf by Quicksilver.

    Actually, most of the cables were manufactured by Morse Controls. You will find part numbers down towards the engine side, about 12-24" back from the cable ends. Depending on the actual manufacturer, they will read in either inches or feet.
