Rudder steering hardware question

Postby Jimbob » Fri Jan 20, 2017 10:08 am

Hi Everybody, more questions.

What hardware is used to connect the end of the steering cable to the tiller? Anything special?
Do I need a support tube for the cable next to the tiller? and how do most of you attach the support tube to the transom or that "thing" the rudder shaft goes through.
Does it hurt to order kit with excess cable? I am afraid I might come up short.

Thanks,

Jim Neeley

Jim if you are running the Teleflex cable you can use the part# and diagram below. you can waste a little cable in your run from the helm to the transom so if anything err about foot longer on the cable and adjust length by your routing.

Thanks!
Any ideas on where to buy? I can't find the parts at my usual online sources.

Thanks! Will be googlin'
One last question. Do I get the clevis kit with the short bolt or the long bolt? I'm using the glen-l tiller.

Ron Filsell's Tahoe 19 installation used an outboard splashwell mount and a custom bracket bolted to the stringer :

Thanks Mr. Hotrod!
I really liked Ron Filsell's installation. Looks easy enough for me to do.
