Glad to hear!!! While you are at it, replace the throttle and shifter cable also. I got stuck in reverse when entering Cori Wilson’s lock on Erie canal (E21).
I replaced my throttle cable in November 2019. Shift cable still seems OK. It crosses over from starboard to port & doesn't come near the hot exhaust manifold. Of course it's the single lever OEM throttle/shift. Repowered in 1986, so the cable is at least no older than that & I'd have to look at inherited records to see how old the shift cable actually is. Right now it's too hot to even think about going inside the boat & look at the cable & pull out inherited PO docs that I keep in the boat. It's 109 outside with predicted high to be 115. If that's the case it's at least 125 in the cabin & cockpit, possibly as high as 130.
