New speedo cable install

    Finally finished my cable install.
    Kelly can attest to the jumping it was doing last year on the way to Knotts. I finally got around to doing it after it was jumping around at 80-90 while I was doing 35.
    After buying a new cable and expecting a torn up old one I took the old one out. It was fine. Seems the square receptor in the speedo gear was rounded out. So new speedo gear and some additional heat protection around the new cable and its all back together.
    Speed needle is nice and steady now.

    I'm getting real good at taking the instrument pod out.

    I bet my cluster screws have been out for 6-7 years ! My column mounted tach helps hold it in place . One of these days.....

    I take my steering wheel off and its much easier to work on the wiring. Just have to squeeze my hands behind it to plug in the harness and attach the speedo.
