Default Mechanical Drive Indicator Cable

Im looking for the starboard side Drive cable part number on a Fastech 312. Does anyone have this information or know where to get to get it? I do not see it printed on the cable by the drive.Next place I am going to check is at the indicators.

Thanks

Thanks Rob,
Yup, I pulled the indicator over the weekend and was able to get the parts numbers. I had to remove the upper speaker and it was staring at me right in the face :-).

Do you know if TFX and SeaStar are one fo the same now? Looks like they no longer make the red Jacket, I maybe wrong. I am looking for the better of the cables.

Thanks

It is kind of funky to have mixed color cables, but, the red jackets are available in some places. I would not run the red anymore because they really are inferior to the performance specs of the new more flexible products. They are easier to operate and last much longer than the original red ones but they are all black. When I replace mine I will have some mixed colors until they are all done.
I would use the new Teleflex even though they are black they are much better.

Thanks for the response. Yea I ended up with the Teleflex black one for the same reason you mentioned. I only have 1 more Red to go. It was pretty easy to change , just have to be careful with the indicators.
