    I need to replace the shift and throttle cables from the helm to the engines on my 260. Would anyone have an idea of the lengths of the cables or where I would find the lengths without tearing everything apart?

    The cables were mgf by Quicksilver.
    Check with your Mercury Marine dealer for part #'s.

    Hope this helps.

    Actually, most of the cables were manufactured by Morse Controls. You will find part numbers down towards the engine side, about 12-24" back from the cable ends. Depending on the actual manufacturer, they will read in either inches or feet.

    This may help. http://westernmarine.com/acrobat/tfmcontrolcables.pdf
