Greetings from plano ,Tx,
have just done the change for my 96 -26x , after much ado, I settled on calling Blue water yacths out of seattle, very evry helpfull, knew there stuff, shipping was great, the change made steering much easier, althou87gh no quit like a rack and pinon. The cost was under 200$ , easy to reinstall, no extra holes to drill.

Replacing Steering Cable on '96 26x

Anybody familiar with replacing the steering cable on a '96 26x? Mine apparently siezed as I replaced the gear box 2 weeks ago... I have the cable assembly removed from the rudder/engine but there is a tube still connected to the cable that I don't understand how its attached? Does it come with the steering cable? Any recommended dealers? Thanks, Dan
