Speedometer cable Details
« on: April 16, 2021, 02:11:32 PM »
I bought a new speedometer cable and I have a few questions.  The new cable has a 4-5 inch long reinforcement tube (shown in the picture) that came with it.  Does anyone know where this piece should reside in the routing of the cable?

Also the clamp shown in the picture was used on my original cable.  This is the clamp used down by the transmission support.  Does this clamp look correct?

Thank you,

Corey

The reinforcement protects cable as it passes through transmission support.  I have not seen that type clamp used but am more familiar with 67's where a clip type was seen on passenger floorboard.  Original 4 speed cable has a metal band around cable where it passes through the clip.

Agree -that clip is incorrect.  It can be a hard piece to find.  Posted a pic on here previously; will have to look for it, again.

At least your cable is black.
