Right Choice - Genuine Volvo Penta Spare Parts for older engines


Volvo Penta's control cables are manufactured of corrosion-resistant material with an outer sheath of HD polyethylene. They are designed following Volvo Penta's extremely stringent requirements for efficient operation with a minimum of play. They are permanently lubricated to ensure a minimum of friction and long service life. Single engine installations require two cables, twin installation require four. It is extremely important to select the exact cable lenght, fewer bends mean better operation and durability. Measure, in as straight a line as possible, the distance between the control unit and the engine/transmission connections. Calculate a radius of 200mm for all bends. Adapt the cable as shown in the illustration - L=A+B+200mm. If the measurement falls betweeen two standard cable lenghts, select the longer cable.

The cables must not be cut to size!
