Transmission Cable
« on: October 12, 2011, 04:29:09 PM »
I need to replace my transmission cable (shifter cable) on my 323. It is a Volvo Penta MD11C. Any idea what the name of the cable is or where to get one?
Thanks,

Erik

I had the same problem with my choke cable, then found out any motor repair shop (that repairs riding mowers or small tractors for example) have many options with cables and I found a suitable replacement. That was 13 years ago, and it still works.

But there are many Industrial-like Marine stores, in a city like New Bedford for example, that can give you what you need.  Not the West Marine variety store, but a place where commercial fishing vessels buy from, and much cheaper as well. I saved like $4 a foot when replacing all my black, thick deck and scupper hoses.  Find a store and mail your cable to have them match up.

Hope this helps
