Sporjet 175 steering cable melt...
Hey guys those of you who have had this happen when you replaced your cable what did you do to try to fix the problem? I have a few ideas but would like to hear some others. I have 630 hours and I hear I got pretty lucky to have gone this long before I had to change it. For those who don't know the cable runs right by the exhaust and melts.
I donít know if this will work on your boat, in the past Iíve made a heat shield out of thin aluminum or sheet metal, also wrapping aluminum foil around the cable also works just not as well.
