I would appreciate input regards what is acceptable play for a push-pull (cable type) boat steering. Please give your comments.

difficult to say as they tend to wear out over time and can snap at any time.

obviously being cable, a certain amount of play is indeed present.
if you took the helm section apart to see where the cable fits in, then you could basically see if too much play is present.
one would see if the helm gears are worn out.
normally cables go long before a helm gearbox is worn out

post some pics, lets see if we can see anything out of the norm

Thanks Willem, much appreciated, I have taken it to a boat repair place in Park Rynie and they say that all is fine.
