I seem to remember replacing a steering cable many years ago. Can't remember who I ordered from but I do remember the sales rep saying something about the length being stamped into the hard plastic casing somewhere near the end (tiller arm end). I looked and looked and finally found it after cleaning the cable housing real good.

I guess we are going to have to change the old saying.

Measure twice, order once...
