Day 49 Engine control cables
Replacing the engine control cables has been a job long over due. Cables are 10' for starboard motor and 14' for the port side. I used Teleflex 33C Supreme control cables as these cables have very low friction and can also bend a tighter radius than others. The tight radius comes into play when the motor is tilted up. I worked as much grease into the ends of the cables as possible to prevent corrosion and once every thing was hooked up I tested the motors using a flush adaptor that allows the engines to be run out of the water. It was pretty easy to get every thing synchronised and once I was done the engines were warm so I changed the oil.
