I'm not sure if you can do remove the cables the way you're thinking, but I just got an email back from Edson customer service (I'm leaning toward getting them to fabricate the cables and also sell me a new chain at the same time) recommending this approach:
... unfasten the cables from the radial drive wheel or quadrant on the rudder post. Next, tie two messenger lines on the cables and bring the assembly up through the top of the pedestal.
This is essentially what Knothead recommended earlier in this thread.
