    Steering cable 245

    Hi guys. My steering has become very stiff and i believevis time to replace the cable and also the helm assembly. Does anyone know the lenght of the cable on a 2004 bayliner ciera 245? The 2455 is the same just in case.
    i have been looking on the cable sheath and there is no part numbers stamped in it. Any help will be really appreciated

    In case someone needs the information the lenght is 15' the difference is night and day. Took my 7yo boy today with me for a spin and he piloted both ways.

      I’ve been putting mine off a while too. You probably won’t find a useable number on there . Unfortunately you’ll be stuck doing the tape measure thing I’m afraid. Then just order by length. On mine anyways it’s a pain to do in the boat so like me you may as well just pull the old one. Take a few pics while you’re doing it for memories sake

        If anyone needs a new rack and pinion cable for a 2858/288 upper helm, I've got a new one that I never got around to installing before I sold and move up. I'd let it go for a reasonable price!

          I just installed a new steering in my 2002 wa and when taking out my old rack system I saw the number on the jacket about a foot down from the helm and also I found but couldn’t read it was about a foot up from the engine end.
