YAM 80/90 trim and tilt problem.

Just getting the boat sorted for the season and noticed the wiring to the trim motor is perished and cracked exposing the inner insulation on the wires in a few places. I dont want seawater getting into the motor down the cable.
Looking on the internet this loom seems to come with the trim motor and costs a fair bit. I think the immediate solution will be some amalgamating tape or glue filled heat shrink if I can get it over the loom.
So several questions arise
Does anyone know the number for the chap who in devon? or was it teignmouth? I think it was breaks yamahas?
does anyone know if its possible to replace this length of cable?
I would have thought the worst bit will be getting the bolts out of the motor?
will the trim motor come off/apart without removing the o/b motor?

I am usually not as green as i am cabbage looking.

Don't know about yours, but I was told an F115 has to come off the transom to remove the t/t ass'y.

How about painting everything with several layers of liquid electrical tape? Could be done in situ.
