Engine Control Cable 12'
C-270, C-28, C-310, C-320, C-42

Part #: Z4551
Control cable for either shift or throttle. Suitable for use on Westerbeke Universal Diesel and most Yanmar engine installations.

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 out source 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.

Typical use for 12 foot cable:
• Catalina 270 transmission
• Catalina 28 transmission
• Catalina 310 transmission
• Catalina 320 transmission
• Catalina 42 throttle & transmission

Other reported uses:
• A Catalina 34 owner reports his boat used this 12' cable for his transmission

See the Engine Control Cable Clamp pictured below under "May we also suggest" to secure the bottom end of the cable to the engine.
• Length from tip to tip: 12'
• Diameter of thread: 10-32
• Travel: 3"
• Minimum bend Radius: 4"
It is wise to check the length of your original cable before ordering as we have encountered installations that were not consistent with the original dimensions as reported by Catalina Yachts.
