I'm replacing a Dometic rack & pinion cable in a 1985 boat. I ordered an SSC134 "The Rack" cable and it won't connect to the helm. What's the problem?

Note the old cable's rack housing color. It is probably black or gray, meaning that the old cable is "The Rack" model (older model, 1984-1995). If the rack housing is green, it may be a TR188 model (1975-86). This is a Dometic system, but the helm will not bolt up to the new SSC134 cable. Replace the helm and bezel kit with 1996-present "The Rack" versions. 

NOTE: Only the replacement cables for 1984-1995 Dometic SeaStar "The Rack" systems are obsolete since 2021 (part number SSC124XX).
