Ok so here's the deal..ive been restoring a 81 Stars and Stripes that my dad got FOR FREE! and i now have two final issues to solve..
#1...My steering was locked up so i finally got the steering cable out and discovered that it had a kink in it and i need to order a new one. Which cable should i order the number on the cable says Teleflex USA- 88C7216. Also i am missing the bolt that goes on top of the clamp that the rudder slides into ( sorry i dont know the "proper" term keep in mind im only 21 and new to boats!!) any ideas on whats supposed to be there?

#2 The gauges have dirt behind the lenses and i would like to order new white face gauges.. will any gauges work?

Any info would be greatly appreciated and i will post pictures as soon as i figure out how to on here!

Cant wait to see pics. On #1, call Skidim www.skidim.com I would bet they have the part in stock and their awesome at tech support and trouble shooting.

#2 It might be hard to find some airguides but from what I know, just about any airguide that fits the hole size in the dash should work.

Sure thing! They are SUPER nice people and extremely helpful. They keep a log on your boat to so next time you call them for a part you don't have to go thru the whole process of telling them your "year, make, model" they have it, and a record of everything you've bought from them for the boat.
