I've taken pictures of how to install a steering cable on a console/helm. Feel free to fill in anything I may have overlooked.

Here's a view from inside the console. When installing the steering cable, insert the cable into the lower opening. You'll need to continuously turn the steering post to the right while inserting into the opening. Continue turning until the cable can't turn anymore to the right.

I think I found a goldmine of information. We will be doing this on Friday and, although I figured it was just a reverse of removing it. I am glad to have found not only this thread but this section that I carelessly overlooked before.
