Volvo Penta Xact Control Cables have been designed to provide the smoothest and easiest throttle/shift operation, while at the same time reducing friction. All fittings are stainless steel.
The all-stainless steel armoured strand core allows for greater flexibility with Xact cables and they are capable of being put into tighter bends for difficult cable routings. Control cable friction plays a vital role when installing your new sailboat control. We always recommend the Volvo Penta Xact cable for the smoothest operation, especially for tight, long or complex cable routing situations.
This is the 3 ft or 0.91 metre version, part number 21407218
If replacing an existing cable, the length required may be printed on the outer sheath of the existing cable, usually every 2 or 3ft. It is very important to select the exact cable length, fewer bends mean
better operation and durability. Measure, in as straight a line as possible, the distance between the control mechanism and the engine/transmission connections. Calculate a radius of 200 mm for all bends.
Adapt the cable as shown in the illustration L = A + B + 200 mm.
If the measurement falls between two standard cable lengths, select the longer cable. The cables must not be cut to size.
