“Measure Twice – Order Once.”
Measure cable routing path from wheel center line to engine connection, as follows:
A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (or deck, if routed downward),
B = Dash to transom,
C = Gunwale to center line of cable connection at centered tiller.
For Cable installations through the Engine Tilt Tube: Add A, B & C + 6″, then round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
For Cables mounted to Transom, Splash-well or Stringer: Add A, B & C, then subtract 6″ and round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
