Removing engine controls from old Edson pedestal

I am trying to replace the transmission cable on our '76 C&C 33 mk1. The cable is a Teleflex and we have the original Edson pedestal. The control cables run through the legs of an engine control bracket. A picture follows. We have removed the wheel and the cover to this bracket, but cannot find the way to get the upper part of the cables through the top. Any help much appreciated.

Re: Removing engine controls from old Edson pedestal

Atomic 4 I'd guess.
I did that job a couple of years ago. It's a b*tch.
As I recall, it's pretty evident when you look at it what you have to do, it's just hard to get things thru the little openings. leave the engine end of the cables free-you'll need play in the cables. You have to remove that horizontal plate on top of the guard around the shifter yolk. The shifter mechanism is pinned inside the housing, I think with a screw on the wheel side of the guard. You have to remove this screw, then work the shifter pivot out thru the top and connect the cable. It's all a close fit. Then work it all back down in. There's also a cable cover clamp inside there that has to be attached.
Get that top cover off and I think it will be evident to you how to proceed.
It's one of those jobs that's 90% frustration and 10% actual labor.
If you can't figure it out, post this at the Moyer Marine forum. I'm sure a lot of those guys have also done the job and may have some tips.

Re: Removing engine controls from old Edson pedestal

Thanks for the valuable info. Were you changing out the cables when you did this? Just curious. Our cable is in good condition but the forks (clevis) at both ends of the clutch are not. Yes, Atomic 4!
