Need to purchase a Steering Cable

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 Sunsetter LXI and I am going to have to replace my steering cable this year. Took boat ot of storage and the steering wheels barely turns.  The boat is back in storage and I forgot to write down part number.

Questions:  Is this a standard part for the Sunsetter LXI or will they need to know id on my boat?  Is this a dealer part only or are many of you purchasing on-line somewhere?

The length listed in the Bakes fit chart should be accurate, but it will not tell you if you have the rack and pinion vs. the rotary style cable. My guess is by 2000 they had switched fully to Rack and Pinion, but someone else may know better.

If you already took a look up behind the dash the rotary style cable doubles back on itself around the steering wheel rather than having the straight bar depicted here. Bakes carries both styles, you just have to ask for the rotary if you need it.
