’69 Speedometer cable

Can anyone tell me whats involved in running a new speedometer cable from the tranny to the stock gauge? Is there room underneath to access the connection without pulling the gauge? Can just that gauge be removed or do I need to pull the entire gauge panel need to be removed? Drop steering column? Thanks everyone!

Hi John, it is held on via a clip on the back of the dash bezel, you dont have to remove anything but it is tight under there.

Re: ’69 Speedometer cable

I did mine without removing anything. I laid on my back from the passenger side over, lifted on the clip a bit (find what it looks like in the AIM or search for photo's) and the cable came right out. I removed it from the firewall and complete from under the car and sub frame. After that I drilled the firewall above the distributor and installed a new one with a different firewall penetration and routing, correct for a manual trans (automatic to 4 speed conversion). It was easier than I thought!

Good luck!!!

Re: ’69 Speedometer cable

Pretty easy to do really. However, after my new cable went it, my speedo stops on the 20 or 30 MPH mark and does not return to zero when the car is stopped, LOL I may have to grease it up and I suggest you do this before the install.
