    How long of a piece do you need? 1-1/4" maybe? I make my own out of stainless steel tubing....I can cut you a piece and send it off for the few dollars of shipping.

    btw, if you loosen the bolt about an 1/8th of a turn and then tighten the bottom nut on the top side against the arm, it will free it up so there won't be any binding.

    We do indeed have the Billet extensions in 3 standard lengths and Custom lengths as well as several types of swivels as well as spacers and stainless studs to make this a very clean transition and connection Tom

    It's best to take it all apart, hold the steering cable up so it's coming out straight and then measure the distance from the bottom of the steering to the top of the steering arm. In looking at the picture you posted, it looks like the steering cable can go up a bit so it's not touching the bottom of the tube where it comes through the transom adapter.
