In the process of converting hydraulic steering over to cable. Would anyone with an 06-09 x-star mind taking a picture of where the cable clamp is located to where the cable clevis connects to rudder arm ?

Would be helpful to see bracket/clamp position since I will have to have this part made.

Thanks for the help.

been fighting leaks with it pretty consistantly. The cylinder has been rebuilt 3 times now and for some reason keeps blowing seals on it. Priced a new cylinder and its by far more cost effective just to convert to cable steer.

Guess my frustration with it outweighs the pros to having it at this point.
