I had similar trouble and the only way I could get it off was with a grinder. I managed to get nearly all the way through, so the shaft wasn't damaged and then drive a drift in to open it up. I didn't budge so I did the opposite side too. With two deep cuts and a drift it finally came off except it didn't, one side came off and the other needed heating and a gentle whack.

Last questions thanks

1 what point do you measure the cable from, is it tip to tip of fittings and cable, from the fitting at the motor to the very end of the Command 200 unit is 13.5 feet.

2 do I really need to remove the steering wheel to replace the cable part.

This is the one I bought
I would say if you have good acsses then you do not have to remove the wheel but it will make it much easier, for me I wanted hydronic anyway so it was the odviose way to go + to get the old cable out of the outboard end ment cutting it ot as there is not ength room to get it out in one & would have ment taking the engine off to fit a new one as far as I can see. Where as with the hydronic I should not have a problem!

As to cable length you measure the back plastic part of the cable not the mettle fittings have a look Teleflex Boat Steering Cable <150 HP - 11 Feet - Scroll Down For Measuring Info | eBay
