So, I thought I would replace all of my cables and pulleys while doing the rebuild, bc each of them was just around $100 each. Well look at this quote from Univair….GEEZ

Cable quote $2600.00

May consider buying custom made cables like these.

I’ve been looking at this as well. That quote is for galvanized cables vs stainless which are a bit more. Looks like most of the pulleys can be purchased at Spruce for about 10% less. Also, the $320 rudder pulley conversion kit can likely be replicated for much less?

    David, good point, I guess the AD is really just a larger pulley correct?
