Orscheln Marine Cables from Marine Specialties
(Can you tie your cable in a knot and still operate it smoothly?)
To complement our Kobelt push-pull controls, we offer cables manufactured by Orscheln, formerly known as Felsted. These are the only cables recommended by Kobelt for use on their engine controls. Similar to the Morse Red Jacket Supreme, but they have a 3” minimum bend radius instead of Morse’s 4” minimum bend radius, plus, they feature a rod bearing in the end fitting. These cables are highly recommended for use as throttle control cables and gear control cables.
The difference can be experienced during installation and especially when used under a load. Only the small boat, industry standard, 33 series (from 5’ to 35’ in one-foot increments) are kept in stock. Orscheln 43 series and 45808 series must be special ordered and normally takes about 1 week for delivery. The 43 series cables are for longer cable runs or when higher push-pull loads are required. The 45808 cables are pull-pull cables for exclusive use between the master and the remote stations of Kobelt’s 2090 series controls.
We only sell cables with the connection ends made entirely of stainless steel.
Please be aware, Orscheln also manufactures these cables with some end parts made of aluminum or steel for the transportation industry and are not intended for marine use.
