2007 Moomba Outback
Removed engine cover from boat.
Pulled floor board behind and in front of engine.
Disconnected Teleflex cable at rudder and steering column.
Job came to a halt.
Cannot for the life of me pull the cable. Something causing it to bind under the floorboard beneath the drive seat and can't reach it. Or, factory zip-tied it to other stuff running under the floorboard.

I assume that you have already attached a line so you can get the new cable back through.
There may be a zip tie, it should not have one (or more), or something is caught or catching. The only one that I have done, I pulled it forward from to the opening on the floor near the drivers area.
Once you loose all patience, won't it be satisfying to just replace what ever gets ripped out in that final heave-hoe.1997 MasterCraft 205

I just replaced mine in July and it came right out, I had no zip ties or anything of the sort keeping it from coming out. I had my whole floor pulled when I replaced mine.
Might just go with Max's suggestion, ha.2004 Moomba LSV Blue

Good news. Old cable has been pulled. Problem last weekend pulling the cable had nothing to do with zip ties. Just me -- not thinking. Will update when the new cable arrives and is installed. Be back here in two weeks. Cheers!2007 Outback
