28. How do we determine what shifting mechanism (cable or rod) to provide with tiller handle steered motors?

If the shift handle is on the side of the motor, it usually requires a shift rod. The shift arm which attaches to the shift handle may be different for cam gates than for the earlier bell crank. If the shift handle is on the front of the motor or on the tiller handle itself, it usually requires a cable assembly. Refer first to the jet kit pictorial / parts list. This will refer you to the pages showing the shift rod and cable mechanisms.
