I am trying to unbolt my steering
cable off a Mercruiser power steering
actuator (on a 2002 Sunrunner 3300 with twin Mag 350 engines).
The coupler self locking nut itself can be unbolted a few turns but appears to be seized onto the cable sheath itself, so will spin back if let go off the spanner.
I take the coupler nut should just spin around (when undone / loose).
The cable has no markings on it so I need to pull it out to measure it.
I've uploaded a pic of the actual cable (red is the grease I tried to pump in) plus an extract of the Mercruiser manual.
Any tips before I get an oxy out
