    does anyone know the length and type of control cables that are used for the gear shift and fthrottle on the w 60 ? or for that matter, any 424? One of mine has seized and I would like to buy the new parts before I tear the old one out.

    When my shifter cable broke I replaced it with cable that matched what was
    there, but I think at 11 feet it’s actually way too long. I had to get the
    boat back and running in 24 hours though so I didn’t want to dink around
    with trying a shorter cable. I have a W58.

    I started by using a piece of string to measure the length of the cable, if
    you think yours is different than mine I’d do that.

    I also bought a pedestal rebuild kit at the time and replaces all the
    bushings and washers. You will have the entire pedestal apart anyway so you
    might as well do it. Your pedestal may not match mine.

    Read the Edson instructions on installing your pedestal.

    You will need to loosen the cables from the quadrant and disassemble the
    top-end of the pedestal completely. You should also find someone to spend
    the day with you who has long arms and small hands to help you pick up stuff
    you drop in there. OMG, that was a pain…

    Hope that helps !

    Sorry, the spell checker must have changed a mis-spelled Frozen to Fraudulent.

    I’m reply to this old thread because while I have the cover of the engine I also want to look into getting a proper cable end onto my shifter. When I originally did this repair the fitting supplied was too long and wouldn’t lineup so to get it working I drilled out the original fitting, which is what you see in this picture:

    Does anyone happen to know where I can find a proper fitting or at last the part number? The Teleflex website isn’t much help.

    I was also thinking it might be possible to bend a piece of SS, tap the end that goes on the cable and drill out a fitting that fully connects to the transmission shifter “post”.

    Thanks,
