There's certainly not any writing on the outboard end, but I don't have good access or view to the cable at the console end... I'll take another look when I get a chance
You only need the length of the cable if your fitting helm and cable together that's why it's easier to do both together as it avoids compatibility issues
Measure from big nut on engine to the fitting that goes into the helm and that's your length
Then just ensure the system is rated above your hp and I'd go for a no feedback system (I think most are now but worth checking)
Before you order check you can get your wheel off the taper slacken the nut back till its level with the end of the threads and pull hard on the wheel while someone gives the nut a sharp smack with a hammer.
If you can't get it off you can buy a kit which includes the steering wheel too which is cheaper than buying separate
