I bought a Jaguar 22 some years ago UK copy of the Catalina 22 and had the same wories. I think the risk of cable failure is always there and I guess MTBF to be about 5 to 10 years but the pin is another matter.
The pin is an area of known weakness with several failures reported. I can see no way to check it short of removal and inspection.
