Installing the New Style Cable

After years of use, the wire cable tends to stretch out over time. Shifting problems can sometimes be fixed by simply adjusting the cable. However, if the cable is stretched out more than an adjustment can fix - you'll need to replace the cable. If the cable is not replaced and continued to be used, the clutch will not engage into either the forward or reverse (usually forward) portion of the gear fully, which will eventually wear out the edges of these surfaces. Over time, this can lead to loss of ability to actually engage the drive into forward or reverse, which is why replacing the cable is recommended. The newer style cable has a larger core wire, and installs from the aft end of the bell housing. Since you'll be working in the bell housing area of the drive, you may also want to replace the bellows as well if they have never been changed or if you're taking in water.

bell housing kit includes the bellow here.

  1. Boats made from 1966 - 1983 with MC-1 or R/MR model sterndrives, had the cable installed from behind (boat side) of the bell housing. If you have this setup, you'll need to modify the bell housing by using a 1/4-20 NC tap with a # 7 or 13/64" drill bit - or a 1/4-28 NFC tap to create new threads in the aft end of the bell housing. The existing threads already go through the housing - use this tap from the other side of the housing.
  2. Make sure to use some lubricant when driving in the tap from the opposite side. The fitting on the end of the cable will almost touch the bottom of the bell housing when fully tightened.
