        Comments about ATP Speedometer Cable:

        The difficulty is not with this product but due to placement of gourmet thru firewall very difficult to get new cable thru firewall and on to speedometer. Very good product would recommend.

                  Happy to answer your question Tim Hash! This cable does not have a gear adapter on it. Looking at the picture which is what the ends of the part will actually look the threaded end (top end of the picture) would go into the transmission and the bottom end would go into the back of the speedometer.

                  A:

                  Good question, Tim! Some GM vehicles used a right angle adapter. If there is an adapter the 7/8-18 female nut on the cable from the speedometer head would screw onto the adapter. There will be another cable from the adapter to the transmission. The lower cable will have a male 7/8-18 fitting on the adapter end and a female 7/8-18 nut on the transmission end. On vehicles without the adapter the cable connects directly to the speedometer head and the transmission.

              • Q:

                Transmission fluid is leaking out where the cable connects to the
                transmission. Can't find any information about gaskets or O-rings
                etc. Is there anything or do I have to replace the whole cable?

                  A:

                  Hi Don! Glad I could be of some help. A worn out drain plug or gasket can cause the transmission fluid to leak. Use the gasket sealant to ensure that the gasket is secured tightly and that there are no cracks. If you replace any cooler lines with hose, make sure you use transmission hose. This will handle the pressure and the chemical resistance that other hoses will not stand up to. Also be sure to know what transmission fluid is needed. One size does not fit all. However, I suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic before replacing the parts that may/may not solve the problem.

              • Q:

                I replaced the speedometer cable the core broke in to 3 pieces and I am trying to find out what the exact length of the core is from transmission to back of speedometer. I have not been able to find out so as to keep the needle from jumping so bad from 0-40mph.

                  This cable out of the box doesn't appear long enough but it is. You will even have a little extra slack left over. I used plastic ties to mount down the difference. Hope this helps.
