Does anyone know the shortest cable I can use?

Do you have a parts book? I think the length is listed.

I am too lazy to go downstairs and look in my parts book.

I do. Didn't think to look there. Thanks!
I wonder if the factory cables were minimum length?

Finally made it to my parts book:

Length is 32 1/2" - center to center

Brings back distance memory when I replaced cables in my LM. I do not think flaps carry a matching cable length. I got one that was a little longer (36" - a guess?).

Clark's has repros - for a price, of course.

Thanks Robert,
That sounds pretty close. My eyeball with a tape was about 30". I'm hoping to find a nice 2 gauge cable in the correct length.
