Gear and Throttle Cables

Can anyone let me know the best place to get Gear & Throttle cablesin Australia



Also if any 440 owners can let me have the length of cables required it would be appreciated - So far from another source I have been told the Gear Cable on the Starboard engine is 36 feet.


As I am doing the Gear cables is it worth doing the throttle at the same time, even though they seem fine.

Re: Gear and Throttle Cables

Can't help with the Australia bit, but most cables have a 33c designation. However, there are also delux cables and I use the Quicksilver type which are easily available from Mercury or Mariner dealers. They are slightly thinner, more flexible and much lower friction. So on a power boat they are a delight to use if you are constantly changing the throttle position.

On a yacht the lower friction will be worth while for a long cable run. You can see the difference in price on this UK page:

Would I change both? yes whilst you are at it. You really don't want a cable breaking in the middle of nowhere, at night, coming into a difficult harbour.

Yeah I had a quick look at the engine end but could not find it - I'll have to get in a take a close look in behind the panels where it will be easier to see hopefully will be.

According to the Beneteau USA parts website the Yanmar control cables appear to be 11m. Part #153050.


You will need to register if not already done so.
