Replaced the helm and steering cable in my '77 this year. Piece of cake. Just make sure to get the correct length cable. The length is stamped into the stern end of the cable. Cheap at SKIDIM.

They don't usually break...they sieze up from corrosion and it becomes difficult to impossible turn the steering wheel.

Mine went from arm wrestling to turning with one finger. Huge difference, inexpensive and easy to do.

These guys may still have some cables if you decide to stay with the original helm.
