Default Trim Indicator Cable question.

I have a 04 42 Fountain Lightning & the Port side trim indicator cable is seized up. Any one happen to know the length & type of cable it is? Would like to know both sides. Sure its about to be seize up as well.

Thanks.

Cable length is marked on the cable.

On either end of the cable there is the number in inches stamped into the jacket of the cable.

If you removed the old cable, measure for replacement cable as follows:Measure from tip to tip and round up to next whole foot, if necessary (aftermarket cables are sold in foot increments).The control cable part number contains its length.

Teleflex cables are usually listed as CC???XX, where XX = length in feet. Morse cables are listed as ??????-??-XXX.0, where XXX.0 = length in inches.

For example:Part Number CC63320 = 20 ft. CC633 Control Cable or Part Number 032377-03-240.0 = 20 ft. 33C Control Cable (240" = 20')

Anyone know how much of a pia it is to change? Have to do one on a 38EC. If you connect them together do they typically just slide through or are they likely to get hung up on the way?

I was able to pull my old ones through by taping together. Easier with 2 people. I pulled cable inside transom and had someone pulling out the back while I fed new cable from the front. Then go back through transom, reseal and hook up
