dissimilar metal question

I installed my lower shift cable and I question where it bolts up to the housing....looks like we have brass and aluminum contact...i don't recall any washers or anything to separate the metals, is this not an issue?

    The cable should have a gasket on the shaft

    On both sides @Alswagg ? I would think to do any good it would be both sides...either side of the cable is in water so its not a gasket, but an isolator between the different metals?
