67 (w/Muncie) Speedometer Cable ...

I need some guidance on a new speedometer cable.

Looking at the catalog is a bit confusing. Upper, lower, one piece, assorted lengths?

My current cable is a single length and roughly 60ish inches.

Might someone shed some light on this for me?

Nothing I am seeing (C.I. catalog) looks to be a straight easy swap.

I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.

Which side does your speedometer cable hook to the trans?

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

There are two different points at which the speedo exits the firewall. Muncie cars use the "Muncie" hole as shown in the attached pic.

Where does your's exit the firewall?

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

I did a Muncie conversion a 2 years ago. My car was originally a 327(L30) with a Powerglide. The production speedometer cable was routed through the firewall below the steering column (non-Muncie hole) to the driver's side hook up. I removed and measured it at 61". I drilled a Muncie hole in the firewall and rerouted through the Muncie hole, over the back of the block and bellhousing to the passenger side of the trans. It fit perfect.

I replaced the cable a few months later, but if I recall correctly, couldn't find a 61-62" cable, so I replaced it with a 69" cable from Summit. Still a good fit.

Hope this helps. I really had to rack my brain and review some pics before it triggered my memory.

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

My entry would also be a *Non-Muncie* hole.

It connects to the transmission on the driver side, nearest the direction it needs to go.

A somewhat longer cable would not be a big problem.

The one they show for 67 w/4 speed is 84" long that would be ridiculous.

They show another for 69 model at 62" but does not designate for 4 speed. Are they different?

I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

A 62" cable is right where you want to be, but the 69 Camaros used a push in connector on the speedo side of the cable. 67s used a screw on. I believe that's the reason I settled for a 69". I couldn't find anything with screw on connectors between 58"-69".

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

Yes, I am noticing *screw on* vs *push on* styles.

Thanks Mike I think you have helped me get this straight.

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

Mike, after a day of thinking this thing through and looking at the offerings from C.I. ... I think that Summit piece is my best bet.

As noted in my previous post 7" to 9" longer is not going to be any problem at all as for fit.

Thank you for chiming in on this. I needed the help and you solved it for me.

I can't complain, but sometimes I still do.

Re: 67 w/Muncie Speedometer Cable ...

I was a bit concerned about the extra length, but it worked out fine. Summit's real good about returns if it doesn't work out. You may even want to try to source it from a local parts store for an easier return.

Good luck Larry!
