FOR YEARS EVERY PERSON OWNING A BOAT WITH A DUAL STATION STEERING SYSTEM AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER HAS BEEN FACED WITH REPLACING THE CABLE. THE PROBLEM STARTS RIGHT WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE STORE AND TELL THE SALES STAFF THAT YOU NEED A REPLACEMENT CABLE FOR A DUAL STATION STEERING SYSTEM. THE FIRST QUESTION THAT IS NORMALLY ASKED IS WHERE DID THE CABLE BREAK? THEN YOU ARE GIVEN A CHOICE. YOU CAN ADD A NEW CABLE TO GO FROM THE UPPER STATION TO THE RUDDER AND NOT USE THE LOWER STATION OR WE CAN ORDER YOU A REPLACEMENT CABLE THAT IS SPECIAL ORDER ONLY FROM THE FACTORY AND WILL TAKE AT LEAST 10 DAYS. AND THE TYPICAL 18' CABLE WITH A UPPER LENGTH OF 10' CAN COST YOU $450.00
NOW YOU CAN REPLACE THAT CABLE COMPLETELY WITH NO WAIT OR SPECIAL ORDERS AND MOST OF ALL, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT 2 WEEKS.
UFLEX HAS COME OUT WITH A DIRECT REPLACEMENT CABLE AND COMPONENTS FOR THE TELEFLEX DUAL STATION CABLE (SEE INSET A ).
HOW THIS WILL WORK IS, IF YOUR LOWER STATION SECTION OF THE CABLE IS BAD AND THE UPPER OUTER SHELL IS STILL IN GOOD SHAPE, YOU WOULD ORDER THE U-FLEX PART # M48XLL. THIS IS A STANDARD ROTARY CABLE WITH 40 EXTRA FEET OF INNER HELICAL CABLE. JUST REMOVE THE BAD CABLE FROM THE LOWER STATION BY REMOVING THE LOWER CABLE NUT AND BACK THE CABLE OUT OF BOTH HELMS. REPLACE WITH THE NEW CABLE BY INSERTING THE NEW CABLE INTO THE LOWER HELM, TURN THE LOWER HELM UNTIL THE CABLE STOPS AT THE UPPER HELM. GO TO THE UPPER HELM AND CONTINUE TURNING THE CABLE THROUGH. AFTER ALL THE CABLE IS THROUGH CUT THE REMAINING CABLE TO LENGTH.
IF THE UPPER OUTER CABLE SHELL IS DAMAGED, JUST ORDER U-FLEX PART #M47XLLD. THE CABLES ARE AVAILABLE IN A PRE SET LENGTH. IF THE TOP MEASUREMENT IS 11' PLEASE ORDER THE 12' CABLE. IF THE LOWER STATION MEASURES 17' PLEASE ORDER THE 18'.
