Hmm, so many too chose from WhalePilot. It would have to be the elevator trim cable. It starts at the center pedestal trim knob and transfers all the way back under the floor boards, up the bird cage and to the trim control surface.

However on the -62 it may be a toss up with the aileron bus cable.

P.S. Who are you driving for now WhalePilot?
