mako hose or midwest control products or any of the bigger airboat companies. Hamant or alumitec

mako has a pto cable that has 8' of travel like a teleflex cable.

I wouldn't use a Teleflex any smaller than 3/8". Check your travel distance and just let Mako know what you need and they will make it while your there.
