Honda HS55 - substitute replacement drive control cable?
Did a search on "HS55 cable" and didn't get a single hit. Looking to replace the drive activation cable (Honda PN: 54510-736-810 "CABLE, CLUTCH" which is same part as the auger cable) which are no longer available. Alternate is listed as 54510-736-C10, also no longer available. Has anyone found a suitable replacement that can be made to work? Mine is frayed at the lever and down to the last couple of strands, I don't trust it for another season. I see other 54510-736-xxx cables out there on ebay (especially the -000), just wondering if any are long enough with the right ends..
Sidegrinder, if you want to help him, you can go to boats. net and look for cables the part number on your machines and see if they match the part numbers that he posted prior, hopefuly they do and he'll be good to go.

54510-736-810 CABLE, CLUTCH (NA USE ALT:54510-736-C10)
54525-736-000 CABLE, CHANGE (NOT AVAILABLE)
That's why I am trying to figure out if maybe the TA is longer and I can just tywrap the extra slack out of the way or something to make it fit. I need to take my cable out and photo/measure it as a starting point I guess. I am not sure if I can fix it or not, there isn't a ton of room under the paddle and that is the bad end.

And hoop end is 1 7/8"
Cable sheath is 26" from here:
Total length knob to hoop end is 33.5"
