I'm going to replace my speedo cable...instructions say to pull out the metal cable inside, lube it, and put it back in outside cable and install in car...how do you pull it out? Just take needle nose pliers a yank? am I going to break something doing it this way? and putting it back in, is it hard, easy? I'm sure it's a long process, but am I going to kink the inside cable putting it back in? Any advice would be appreciated...a few more weeks and this car should be top notch mechanically and I can start working on the body!! Guy(NH)

You should be able to just pull the speedo cable from the dashboard end. Lightly lube it, then reinstall. Your going to hit some snags, so be patient. Also, twisting the cable as you put it back into the sleeve should help.

Don't forget to replace the speedo gear. It's a plastic piece that is prone to wear.
