Teleflex Safe-T QC Steering Cable
Featuring the patented Quick Connect Cable hook-ups, the Teleflex QC II Replacement Steering Cable Assemblies are intended to replace the Teleflex SSC62 (used in Safe-T QC & NFB Systems) and SSC72 (used in Safe-T TS & Big-T Systems). These assemblies have been designed to fit most post-1968 Teleflex rotary helms. Teleflex Safe-T steering cables have designed for use with inboards, outboards, and stern drives with either single or twin motors.
Teleflex Safe-T Steering Cable Features:
- Cable output ends made from durable, non-corrosive stainless steel
- Uses fast, simple snap-in connections: Teleflex Quick Connect (QC) cable and standard Safe-T mounting hardware
How to Measure Steering Cables Accurately:
Replacement of Existing Cable: If possible, find the part number stamped on the plastic jacket of the old cable. If the old cable has been removed, measure for its replacement as follows:
For Rotary Steering Cable Replacement, Measure Existing Cable as follows: Measure plastic cable jacket (“Y” dimension, shown in above drawing) in inches, add 18″, and round up to next foot. Order that length cable.
New Installation: Measure cable routing path from wheel center line to engine connection, as follows:
A = Center line of wheel to gunwale (or deck, if routed downward)
B = Dash to transom
C = Gunwale to centerline of cable connection at centered tiller.
For Cable Installations through the Engine Tilt Tube: Add A, B & C + 6″, then round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
For Cables Mounted to Transom, Splashwell or Stringer: Add A, B & C, then subtract 6″ and round up to the next foot. Order that length cable.
TYPICAL SINGLE STATION ROUTING
The above diagram illustrates a single-cable, starboard drive push-pull mechanical cable system. For different systems, or you have any questions about mechanical steering, please contact Teleflex (Mechanical) Technical Service at (610)-495-7011 or www.teleflexmarine.com
Cable routings (such as those found on pontoon boats) may vary from this drawing. Confirm length by laying a garden hose or similar object) along cable path and measure run from wheel to engine connection point.
Note: If converting from a SSC61 cable, you will also need Sierra SA27620P Quick Connect Converter
