ok my buddy has a 1970 Camaro and the speedometer was not working so we figured out the problem. the cable was bad so my buddy went and bought a new one. when we tried to install the new cable it wouldnt plug into the back of the speedo. the ends on both the old/new cables are the same. the old one will plug right in the new one wont. we need help because we can not figure it out. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!
Did you try twisting the inner cable at the other end as you were installing it to the speedo. Sometimes it takes a little twisting of the inner cable to line up and seat all the way in before you can tighten up the cable to the speedo.
The MAN will work... I only wish i was the WOMAN....
hahahahahaha thats funny thanks again for the tip could you add me so if i have any other questions because we are rebuilding this car piece by piece i can find you easier and im new to this site so i have no idea what im doin on here?
ok im still having problems hooking up the speedo on my buddys 77 camaro. the cable that runs from the speedo to the cruise control box is the the cabke im having troube with. it just will not plug into the back of the speedo. ive tried a members idea of twisting the inner cable but that didnt even come anywhere near working not that it was a not a good idea its just didnt work anybody else or skeeter have any ideas on how i can hook up the speedo. if i can i would rather not have to take outthe entire cluster gauge. please guys i am begging for ideas b/c ive tried everything i can think of and nothing is workin. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP i dont care if u think the idea is kinda moronic or if u think ive tried it before cause i may not have though of it.
Measure the square end in both x & y direction. The square crimp may be too big compared to the old cable end, or, the new end could be a rectangle.
Also, measure the open length of the cable to the old cable.
actually i dont have a clue as to what any of that means but i know that both ends on the new and old cable are the exact same. and no i havent taken out the gauges to look at them im trying to hook up this cabe without having to do take out the gauges.
