Continuing the frustrating attempts it seems this is a Ride Glide system. My rack is in great shape and looks like this:

so I don't need a new rack though I'd gladly pay for a cable with that type rack if I could find one. If I could find a cable long enough with this sort of rack end: https://tinyurl.com/yy2ewfqv that would be great but imo I need at least 38' and that one is a bit short and that's if what is pictured is what would actually arrive. Sometimes you don't get what's in the picture. At this point it seems I need a 11111A~~ or 76043A~~ type steering cable with the ~~ being at least 38', or 40', or... If anyone knows a place to check for vintage cables like that please let me know.
At West Marine they have the SS141~~ type cable and the threaded part from the motor end of my cable fits on it perfectly so that end would work great. But the new rack would not bolt up to the old helm and the tooth spacing may or may not be compatible if I could make a bracket to addapt it. It looks like it could be an option though. Another is that maybe the cable could be removed from the SS141~~ rack and be made to secure to the old rack. Have any of you made a repair that way before, or tried to?
