    Location/Access to 1998 3988 Dual Station Shift Gear at Lower Helm?-gctid810255

    Hello All,

    I need to replace my 1998 3988 Port Shift cable(TeleFlex CC 223228 28') from the bridge to the DS shift gear at the lower

    helm, I hope!! Can some please tell me the easiest way to gain access to the shift gear so I can disconnect the old cable

    and connect the new one?

    Thanks A Bunch, Dan

    PS: I have a copper fitting that I can screw the new cable to the old one at the bridge and then grab the end of the

    old cable at the lower helm and HOPEFULLY pull the new one all the way from the bridge to the DS shift gear.

    Sounds way to easy for that to happen without any problems. Has anyone tried this option?

    I replaced the cables on my 3988 using a similar fitting, i added a swivel to the fitting to allow some flex around corners and it was relatively easy to pull in the new cable with the old. Under the lower helm remove the storage locker door and box insert and you can access the lower quadrant.

    good luck!

    cheers, Gary
