I am lucky to have the need for a speedocable replacement on my el camino 1971.
I know its hard to reach the connector on the instrumentpanel side.
I have been reading on it, it read that the cable is hold in place by a spring / clip.
However my cable has treaded ends on both sides. I ordered the ATP Y 804 cable.
One side has a bigger tread diameter but for sure thread.
What am i mis understanding here?
Thnx in advance
Ok guys this afternoon I succesfully installed my new speedocable(without removing any dash parts except the small cover underneath the steering column.
1. New cable
2. Rebuild tranny with (wrong ratio) installed gears
The next ussue i experience:
The speedo needle actually comes up when i am accelerating.
If I slow down the speedo refuses or sometimes partly refuses to fall back to lower speed indication. For sure it will not go back to zero, untill i reverse the car
I also notice that above in my case 70mph on the dash (the reading it self, the gears are not right in the tranny) the reading starts to go off the record. When it shows 70mph and i actually increase 10mph it should indicate but instead it goes to 110mph.
Other issue i notice, when accelerating to certain speed and fix my speed. The speedo is very slow in getting to the stable reading. Lets say in 5 seconds i go from speed 1 to speed 2, the speedo needs 10 seconds to go from speed 1 to speed 2.
Another issue is that i hear a slight grinding nose coming from the speedometer.
Anyone got a indication for this problem and a possible solution
