    Default Steering cable motor compatibility

    I used to have an older suzuki dt50 on an arima 15' boat. The motor died. Is a 1997 yamaha 70 hp motor compatible with the old steering cable? Is there anything else I should worry about or consider when putting a different motor on the boat? (I might look at another motor on craigslist so any information would be helpful.)
