    Default Calgo thru hull cable seals, NEED HELP!

    I m trying to finnish up My calgo steering setup and need a little help with the thru hull cable seals. The seals that I bought to use are too smallfor the cable sheathing. My cables are 3/16" and the sheathing is exactly 7/16".
    here is my set up.





    This is the seal that I bought th use from the T/A plate to the adjustment bracket. The hole in this is exactly 7/16" and will not fit the sheath.




    This is an old seal, maybe even an electrical seal, which the hole is slightly bigger than 7/16". It does fit the sheath pretty good but slightly loose, but it it is but ugly!





    Here is a picture of Widowmakers setup and what I am trying to achive.




    Does any one know or have any ideas of what cable seals I can use to solve My delimma? I gues the stainless seals work well on the 1/8" cables that are common to the Calgo. I think they are for a size 33 seris cable. Need some help ASAP because this is the only thing holding Me up from completeing the steering.

    Those cable seals are for the 33c cables. Rex Marine sells them. They are the 45 degree version. Here is the link.



    If you need different sized straight versions, go on mcmaster.com

    look under "cord grips" they sell the water tight versions in several different sizes and in aluminum too.

    The mcmaster part number i found is (8302K141) fits .38 to .50 o.d.

    they are about $11 each. Made of out aluminum.

    Yes I meant 33 seris. I originally ordered the 45* seals but they were back ordered with no idea of when they will get any just like my Tac is backordered with no Idea of an ETA, but that is another Rant! So i got the straight ones.
