I finally got a photo of the business end of the engine shut off cable. Don't know that it will help much since most of the fittings seem to be part of the engine rather than the cable.

shut off cable

Al,

Thanks, I appreciate the photo. That looks very different than any cable I have seen so far with that little loop to tie off the end but the fittings line up right so - cool solution.

I bought a cable on the web that looks very different from what I have. It is longer and much fatter with a very different end piece. I will try to make it work but it will take some jerry rigging with the fittings.

I have not yet found a Yanmar cable the same length as the Morse cable I had but that should not be much of a problem.

John

Dear Al,

Knowing almost nothing about this, let me weigh in anyway. The cable is NOT a Morse (Teflex) cable at all but rather a regular "CONTROL CABLE 15' UTILITY & SHUT OFF" (e.g. Hamilton Marine). The central wire that moves in and out was bent back simply to keep the end (which I can attest is quite sharp) from puncturing you ever time you work on the engine.

If it were me I'd remove the cable, fill a baggie with your favorite rust-busting gunk, tape it *tightly* to the end of the cable jacket, and suspend the works for a week to see if the fluid will flow and lubricate the cable. I've saved a couple of cables this way -- and a couple not!

All the best, Jay

My cable (in the photo) works fine. I was just trying to help out John, who wondered what the business end looked like.
