  • Nee dhelp with morse shift cable - Volvo AQ231a

    Hi all -- need to replace 2 shift cables (same numbers at helm) - 301947-003-0276 0 22982. Are these 27ft cables? Boat is a twin 350 AQ231a duo prop -

    cables are red morse if that helps.. cant figure out if these are 22ft or 27ft (the boat is about 26ft long) - so possibly 22ft? cant find an exact match on the numbers

    did some googling and found that morse list cables in lengths in inches, 276 inches = 23ft! sounds right.

      Yup 23ft. A bit longer won't hurt a bit.
      Shorter will

      They sell a fitting at home depot that screws on the end of the old cable
      and on the end of the new.
      Then just pull the cable through.

      Buy American made Cars and Trucks!!!Towing insurance for a boat,a GREAT thing.

        The thread on the end of the cables is 10-32.
        Spend some more $ and get the “Morse Supreme” versions. Depending on how the hose that the shift cable has to go through is located and the bends it has can be a challenge to use the old cable to pull the replacement one through. You may have to feed the cable from in the boat to the outdrive.
