Speedometer Cable

I am looking for a replacement cable.  I believe a universal internal cable replacement will work.  The cable thickness of the one in my car is 0.130 OD  This was a universal cable replacement I installed in 2006.  Got it on eBay.   I can purchase the 0.130 cable from Restoration Supply but it isn't squared on the end and they don't sell the proper tips ?? 

Any Suggestions.

Chet , how did you make out with this ?  Also did you try Jay Pre 39 Chrysler ?


Hi Tom,

I purchased a Universal 0.130 Cable from Amazon for 8.95.  Free shipping for Prime member.

The cable is squared on one end and the 0.130 OD is correct to fit into the speedometer.  It does not come with the transmission key.   The one packaged with the cable is also squared, so you need the proper key.   

I was able to reuse my transmission key .   Cut to proper length, greased the cable and it is now working smooth and quiet.
