             Pre-Alpha & Alpha Kit

This cable threads from inside of the bell housing. Boats which were made from 1965 to 1983 had cables which threaded in from behind the bell housing. These cables are no longer available to us.

To use this cable on boats made from 1965 - 1983,  you will have to modify your bell housing by running a 1/4-18 pipe tap from inside of the bell housing.

                  Shift Cable Tap 

Boats made from 1965 - 1983 can use the above shift cable kit by running this tap from inside of the bell housing to just 4 threads short of the end of the tap. Your threads already come thru the hole in the bell housing, you just have to put the taper from the opposite side.

Use some WD-40 and a socket to drive this tap in from the opposite side. The 9/16 brass fitting on the end of the shift cable must almost touch the bottom of the bell housing when it is tightened down.

Please Note ! The taps we were selling required a 1/2" 12 point socket to reach inside and drive the tap. The newer taps we have now require a 10mm 12 point socket or you can lightly grind the 4 corners of the tap to fit a 3/8" 12 point socket.

         : Order # 0016              Sorry, there are no returns on this item.
