    Wow!

    How is it routed on your boat to have so many problems?

    Is it making some very tight bends somewhere?

    Your problem is a piss poor alignment at the shift lever, sometimes you need to space oout the clamp area to get it to line up properly, also you may have too long of an arm on the shifter (called a bell crank), this put unneeded stress on the cable end and breaks the outer wires retainong the jacket.

    The bigges mistake I see is that people try to wire tie the living crap out of the cable to the wire harness and the clamps in the hull, you must allow the housing of the cable to move for at least the first couple feet of cable on each end...

    I have seen this before and the cause is almost always the same. Get it aligned and let it move around.


    BTW, Tom, very big of you.

    Tom Thanks... As I have said befor you are one hell of a stand up guy
    at this point I just sent an email to Mike (Rex) as he is the one I got it from

    GT thanks for some good ideas
    I will try to take some pics of my routing of the cable tonight.
    The outer wire just pulled out of the clamp did not brake the wires

    If I understand you right the first bend that comes from the shifter
    my be to tight and causing the inter cable to push the outer wire out of it's clamp

    This is on my Place Diverter the shifter clamps all look good, nice and straight

    Thanks just the same let me know !
    re "the cables" I probably didn't decribe well when I say "geometry" I'm refering to the imaginary "line" between the anchor point and the terminal end as well (this will cause damage at the cable end psleeve/tube) Also too tight of a radius from the cable anchor point for or aft is tough on the plastic jacket . The first is hard on the cable tube/sleeve and the second is tough on the cable jacket where its attached to the end anchors Tom

    If it is happening on the bucket end, you may need a longer cable to take the travel of the diverter,, be sure to have a good size bend coming out of the transom to the bucket, So when the diverter is all the way down you are not putting any stress on the cable!

    will get better pic


    A Morse cable was on the boat when I got it, and the date on the cable was 06-99
    I replace it do to cracking of the out case in 06. The Morse cable was thicker than the new
    cable

    Soaker, 0ver 10 years on my REX cables...you're obviously doing something wrong
    Also, my diverter handle is stringer mounted (no bends)...I like it between my legs
