Re: C&C 30 MK1 Shifter help.

Just replace the cable. The existing 33 year old one is probably corroded. A new Teleflex cable (or almost any other suitable replacement) will probably be a nice upgrade.

You should also check the transmission oil. I accidentally used the wrong oil (30W instead of 10W30) in my Yanmar 2GM20F transmission and it killed the shifter feel. A got back to the dock and put in the correct oil and the shifting got precise once again.
