I couldn't find another thread to verify this...
For a 2001XStar...is it simply a 19' Rack Teleflex Steering cable?

you need the backmount rack steering cable. The one you linked to does not look like it has the rack, which is built in to the cable.


part number 100861

I think MYMC has them for something like $105. I spent something like $160 at my dealer.

Is yours broken already?...I just replaced my steering cable last summer for the first time, and my MC is 27 years old??:D

Well..not broken. Having 'stiff' steering is like having bad bindings (wake or snow)..it can put a damper on a great day.

Yeah..I had an 89 190...steering lasted forever. Not the case in the newer boats...for whatever reason. About 5 yrs (or @400 hours) and it becomes a pain. (I'm sure there's some of you guys over that mark). Just seems I'm reading alot of posts of MC guys having to change out cables.

Losing our 'local' MC dealer...I gave westmarine a chance...they didn't have it in stock but overnighted from another WM shop.

It is simply a teleflex part number ssc13419.
Out of curiosity...a nearby MC dealer was going to ship for about the same amount....but arriving several days later.
