33 series cables have 10-32 threads on the inner core. 43 series have 1/4-28. Both of your cables should be 43 series as that is what Place uses and is the normal size for a Berkeley forward/reverse.

Hal nearly all modern jets (except OE Jacuzzi which use 33's ) use "43" series cables for trim and Fwd Rev controls The cables you show in the pic (of Squirts boat) (red vs Black) differ in size due to both manufacturer and the evolution of cable manufacturing the older red Morse had a beefy outer jacket sheath while most of the newer 43 series cables are signifantly smaller OD . the later cables can be modified to fit the seals better with a small section of heat shrink applied in the area where they pass thru the seal , also there are now small OD packings available to compensate Tom
