Volvo Penta shift cable

Postby Bigtow » Sat Nov 11, 2017 6:15 pm

Hello .I have a 1998 Regal destiny 240. Volvo Penta 5.7 sx outdrive.Question is. There is a plastic guide mount piece that attaches the shifter cable to control box to keep it from sliding. Where can I purchase this part? Or is there an aftermarket replacement part? I purchased a new shift cable but it did not come with the plastic guide mount piece. Thank you. Mark

Mark, my thoughts = Call whom ever you bought the new shift cable from and ask them about the plastic mounting guide? Your picture is really fuzzy, cant quite make out what it is.

The part you have shown is typically part of the shifter and not of the shift cable when purchased. I just replaced my dual shifters and have a couple of those parts left over from my old shifter. Give me a personal message if you would like me to send one to you.
