    Does anyone have a pic of a factory or NOS speedometer cable at the end that plugs into the speedo head? The aftermarket cable I purchased looks nothing like my old cable - which I think is the factory cable, but not 100% sure. I installed the aftermarket cable and the cable itself will not engage the speedometer drive in the speedometer. Installed my old cable and everything works fine.

    Try pulling the steel cable out a little by hand, engage it in the speedo and then clip the housing on. They slip down in the housing a tad sometimes.

      beanhead, I tried that and could not get the cable to engage. I believe the cable is too short. I was curious as to what another factory cable end looked like.
      Thanks for your suggestion.
