    Swapping Virage TX reverse cable

    I need to replace the reverse cable in my Virage TX.
    I have the replacement part, I just need to do it now.

    My question is, what's the trick to removing the old
    one and installing the new one? It's one of the deals
    where there's a couple bolts in the middle of the cable
    (where it attaches to the hull) so I don't know how I'm
    suppose to get the cable out and in?

    Advice? Thanks!

    Do you have the replacement cable on hand?

    Does it have the nuts and seals for the hull pass through?

    Yes, I have the cable. Yes, it has the nuts and seals.

    Is one of the nuts going to be able to be removed (over a rod end)
    in order to allow the cable to go through the hull? That's what I'm
    trying to understand. The nuts definitely won't go over the swivel
    joint, unless that has to come off to install the cable.

    The ball joint end piece should just unscrew, I think.

    I don't have one handy to check, but I think it just comes off the threaded rod end. Loosen the locking nut behind it (Item 38 ), then unscrew the end piece (Item 39).
