just go and get a new one made. they will need the speedo to put the right end on. it is realy not that pricey and well less of a frustration this way. also a new cable is a good idea if you have the original one in there any way. they do go bad and with a new speedo it will probably like you more this way!LOL

I put the Phantom gauges in my Camaro but I used the electric speedo. I love it. Very easy to hook up and very easy to calibrate.
