  • throttle cables

    I was just wondering if anyone knows what the correct length throttle cables whould be for a 1985 254 (25') with twin outboards. The cables that are on there are too long and I wanted a nice fit. Thanks

    You want a medium size loop at the engine so they can flex, use your old ones as a guide. subtract the amount you think their too long.

    If you pull both cables out make sure you pull a wire or rope back thru the tube to help you pull the new ones. dave
