Trip out. I did the same thing with mine, but I cut the bic tip to slip over the remaining seedo cable in the Nissan (89 D21).

I didn't have the old square plastic piece so I cut the square section of a metal speedo from a 72 lincoln I had in the bone yard.

Works fine, no noise either.

Talking Brilliant!

I have been googling for three days trying to find something to explain why the #$^% pin won't turn or reseat.

This post inspired me to clean off the grease (that I usually try to leave on) and I discovered not one, but TWO cracks. I'm trying to track down some shrink tubing right now (from work - not the easiest thing ever) and I'll fix it after work today.

Thank you!

Talking Fix your speedometer cable

Thanks to the internet I have saved myself money and time. I bought this truck last week and the previous owner had tried to get the speedo fixed with no luck. His mechanic said it would need either a new cable or speedo. When I followed the instructions on this thread, I pulled out the tip and found the body was cracked exactly as shown. I have some shrink wrap somewhere so will hopefully have the truck legal and back on the road this weekend. Thanks again- great thread and website.

Excellent! This write-up saved my bacon Everything on my cable was good except the little hairline crack at the end of the housing, like the OP pointed out... I would have never thought of it... So I shrink-tubed it and like magic the speedo works again!! Thanks!

I do notice it registers my speed as a little faster than I'm actually going, but I'm pretty certain that's because of the taller tires it's running

Does the cluster side work properly? Did you pull the plastic piece out of the cable side?
