520 Rib rigging advise

Hello all,

Old on sibs, new on ribs, need to rig a new 520 rib, has central console & seat, will use a Yamaha 60 HP L 2 strokes, electric start, need to know: According to manufacturer will need 14" steering, shift & throttle control cables

1-The Yamaha motror box seems comes standard with 13" cables, is there any kit on the market that will extend current size cables to 14" ? No, you have to change to 14" size to match central console engine box to engine.

2-On a central console, the cables passes from middle console, driver seat towars engine in a straight line, no passes console right side bordering tubes to transom, a right side mount engine control box will be used.

3-Which mechanical steering system would be best to install : central single helm, 3 or 4.2 turns or rack/pinion system standard 3 or 4.2 turns ? There are some Teleflex kit available that includes system + steering cables.

4-Would you advise to install gas tank under central console, driving seat or transom area ?

5-Which one is better :
Teleflex (morse) 3300 universal standard cables or 33C Supreme Red Jacket ?

Any tech imput will be kindly appreciated.

Happy Ribbing
