important hint from CHS!!

And remember to repeat lubricating every year! Take engine oil and let it enter from top,
it will find all the way down to the trans.
And yes, it is a mess: put a newspaper under the dash, for the drips ...

when replacing the cable make sure to lube it first. That is most likely the reason your original broke in the first place. Lubricating reduces binding.

If You are ok witilh the old flex-tube, You can even just pull the old cable out and just slip the new cable in.
This work is easy done from the Radio hole.
You omit working under the car plus pushing the outer flex- tube through the engine compartement.

It may be easier to get access from the radio hole.
Taking the Radio out is fast.
Than fix lower speedo end first, turn cable until it engages, than try upper end.
I cant remember how I did make fit the upper. Maybe it entered without aligning?
Good luck!

Speedo cable

I'm waiting on a Speedo cable. Should be here by weeks end.
Just un-screw from both ends,right? 1951 Cambridge.
Should be able to reach gauge end from under the dash. Am I correct about that?

Thanks
