This engine control cable is used to actuate the throttle on boats equipped with an Atomic 4 (and some early Yanmar engines).
Our Premium grade cable has a highly efficient "armored" core technology is the best in the industry. Stainless steel flat wire swaged over stainless steel stranded cable and burnished to a smooth, close tolerance finish, provides high flexibility and incredible strength.
The inner liner is specially processed polymer that minimize friction for maximum efficiency. The inside diameter is precisely controlled to minimize lost motion and premature wear, problems that seem to plague most "splined" or "grooved" liners like the original OEM cables. The conduit is a "full complement" of reinforced wires that are placed in a long lay pattern to protect the liner and inner core. The close tolerances achieved between the cable core and conduit result in minimal deflections during cable operation, assuring precise controlling action to the operator.
The outer jacket is heavy duty, high density non-hydroscopic polymer jacket that is extruded onto the conduit for maximum cable strength and abrasion resistance.
The end fittings are 300 series stainless steel and nickel-plated brass and are used throughout to ensure maximum corrosion resistance.
The seals and boots are durable polymer seals and are used to prevent moisture and contaminants from entering the cable.
Many companies outsource their manufacturing to other countries in an effort to save money, but by doing this they lose control over the manufacturing process. Our control cables are manufactured right here in the USA. We’re committed to providing cables that are cost efficient yet made of the highest quality. The three year warranty is the best in the industry and one year greater than the warranty that was included with the original cables.
• Length from tip to tip: 8'
• Diameter of thread: 10-32
• Travel: 3"
• Minimum bend Radius: 4"
This cable is not suitable for the clutch on the Atomic 4. The Atomic 4's transmission requires much greater force to engage than the typical transmission used on a diesel engine, see our part number H1968 for the required heavy duty clutch cable.
The 8' length is the common (although not exclusive) size used on the Catalina 27 with cockpit mounted engine controls. Please measure to ensure you are ordering the proper length. If you need a different length, please call our tech support line at 916/843-1971.
