    Reverse Cable Fitment

    Will a cable from an MSX fit a Virage?
    The reverse arm is the same 5433871, the bucket is the same 5434049 so if the cable end at the handle and at the bucket connection are the same, would the thru hull fitting be the same??
    If it mounts through the hull the same (I couldn't imagine they would change the way it passes through the hull), it would just be a matter of a longer cable...
    I wonder how thick the MSX hull is in comparison to the Virage...if it's thicker, would they have left enough provision for the nut to tighten against the hull?
    If it's just a longer cable I'm pretty sure there would be enough room for the cable to lay down in the bottom of the hull...or is there...
    Artie Art, where's your reverse cable off the old Matrix project??

    Al,

    I have a spare MSX reverse cable, if you want it, it is yours.

    I bought it as part of an entire MSX reverse assembly, from reverse handle to reverse bucket.

    What I don't have is the small hardware bits (bolts, nuts, clips, etc).

    Guess Al is being nice on why is looking for the reverse cable What happened is I drove from up north after meeting Al and Kevin with a ski for Randy and had my pump off- during the 1st 1 hour of driving home the push rod broke off the cable at the hull since it was bouncing all over place - note to all secure down with duck tape when moving the ski with the pump off! Wow at 1st I thought you put up a wrong picture and of the steering cable, looking at my Virage and MSX side by side as you can K447 did you notice on the MSX that it looks like Polaris went with the same size end rod for both the reverse and steering at the pump end. The rod system on the 2001 Virage is @ 3X's bigger in diameter, I wonder what they used on the later Virage modles , guess I could look up part #'s
    2001 Virage


    2004 MSX

    Both of my 2002 Virage TXi have the same small diameter reverse cable end as my 2004 MSX 140.

    Looks like 2001 was the last year for that thicker reverse cable end.

    Is that 2001 cable just an extra metal sleeve that slides over the end of the actual reverse cable, and the cable inside is actually the same as the 2002+ reverse cables?

    I am being lazy too - so I have not looked it up...

    Pirate, if you want my spare MSX reverse cable, just let me know.

    BTW, if I recall correctly, the 'small' reverse cable, and the steering cable end, are not quite the same diameter. The rubber sleeve seal for the rod is slightly different in size, and have different part numbers. I remember ordering both part numbers, because I could not tell from the parts diagrams which rubber seal was for which rod.
    Or maybe I am thinking of the cable boot seals at the hull...

    I bet your right it looks like it is just a extra sleeve, wonder why they would do that? and I guess the reason for the reverse using SS nut and the steering using plastic nuts at the hull was due to greater strength needed for the reverse bucket

    Thanks so much for the offer I don't know what to say but I think Al is the one that needs it
    Thanks

    I'd love to get the cable and am more than happy to pay something for it and shipping. If you won't take moola, I'll make sure it fits the Virage boats and then pay it forward.

    Pay it forward is the whole idea!

    I feel it is the least I could do.

    PM me the address you want it sent to.

    As I said before, I just have the cable itself, but no other small hardware.

    How fast do you need it there?
