I was trying to replace the rudder deployment lines on our Delta Tandem 20T and could not feed the new line through. It was getting stopped by the ferrule at the end.

I went and got a length of some 14/3 house wiring and pulled the ground wire from it.

Fed that through and still couldn't get it past the the ferrule it would get to the end and bonk! stopped dead.

Took one of my small files and filed a sharp point on the end of the wire and voila! it went right past the edge of the ferrule.

Used some tape, to tape the line to the wire and pulled it through.

Thought I would post as I searched and did not find any answers.

Regards

Sean
