Q:I have a 18ft Bass buggy. Pontoon need new steering cables. Not sure if rotarey or rack and pinion. How do I tell and how do I measure length of csblesAsked on 3/1/2014 by rookie
The first thing you will need to do is look behind the steering wheel to see if you have a long bar (Rack and Pinion) or a round box (Rotary) with a cable coming out of the top and bottom.
Then you will need to remove the existing steering cable so that you can measure the length. You will only need to measure the black cable part and not the ends that are not covered with a plastic sheeting. Then round up to the nearest foot.

Q:lowe 18 ft pontoon boat--will these cables work on itAsked on 2/4/2010 by bobby from meridian ms
A:These cables will replace OEM rotary cables and after-market rotary cables. The key is that you need to know whether your system is rotary or rack and pinion and replace with the same system that you had because it is much more difficult to switch between rotary and rack and pinion.Answered on 2/9/2010 by Justin from Overton's

Q:I have a 12 foot gamefisher aluminum boat will it worksAsked on 7/21/2009 by Anonymous
A:If you have a rotary system on your boat this is a great replacement. If you have a rack and pinion system currently then you need to replace it with a rack and pinion system. Either system can potentially work on you application, but you need to replace it with the same kind that is currently on there for the easiest installation.Answered on 12/7/2009 by Justin from Overton's Technician

Q:24 ft Playbouy pontoon what is the recomended length for steering cable?Asked on 6/4/2009 by rsm from Dadeville, AL
A:Unfortunately we have no way of telling exactly what length steering system will best suit you and your application. The best thing for you to do is to take out you old existing steering system and to measure the cable completely. If you do not have the old existing steering system you can measure the path of the steering system and add 6" to that measurement and that should give you the proper length that you need. If you have any further questions please contact us here at Overton's at 1-888-OVERTON and any of our Technical Product Specialist will be glad to assist you.Answered on 6/8/2009 by Brooks, Marine Buyer from Overtons
