removing steering cables so we can replace the engine

We are changing a broken motor for an used one that runs great. The one on the boat is a Johnson 150 J150plees.

What do we do to get the steering cables off of the boat? We do have an OEM for the motor but we tried this last summer and could not get it done even with the book. Something seemed stuck. So anything anyone can offer would be appreciated.

Remove the nut on the steering arm that holds the end of the cable, then remove the large aluminum nut at the end of the of the cable.
Once those are off it "should" just pull out. If it's been on there a while they can stick, a good lube helps.

I have had to cut them apart.
