How to Measure Control Cables - "Measure Twice. Order Once."

Learn how to measure boat control cables on an outboard or inboard/stern drive boat. Step by step instructions:

For a New Installation: Measure cable routing path from control head attachment point to engine connection. For a Replacement: Find the part number or length stamped into the plastic jacket of the old cable if possible. Cables are sold in one foot increments.

Outboards:

cable path + 4 ft. loop at engine + round up to next ft.

  • Measure from control along cable routing to center of outboard.
  • Add four feet to allow for loop which provides unrestricted engine movement.
  • Round up to next whole foot.
  • Order required cable part number.

Inboards & Stern Drives:

cable path + round up to next ft.

  • Measure from control along unobstructed cable routing to shift and/or throttle connection.
  • Round this dimension off to the next whole foot.
  • Order required cable part number.

For Replacement of Existing Cable:If you removed the old cable, measure for replacement cable as follows:

  • Measure your old cable from tip to tip.
  • Round up to next whole foot, if necessary.
  • Pick the proper end connections - OMC and Mercury use specific end connections on most of their cables but nearly all other manufactures use 33C style threaded control cables

For example:

  • Part Number CC63320 = 20 ft. CC633 Control Cable
  • Part Number 032377-03-240 = 20 ft. 33C Control Cable (240" = 20')
