SPEEDOMETER CABLE

1974 Ford Pinto

Transmission problem
1974 Ford Pinto 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I am changing guages and the new one has a screw on the back of the speedometer, What do I have to do? Is there an adapter at the speedometer end or do I have to purcahse a different drive gear that can execpt a new cable? Where could I purchase it?
Thank you Bob

Without being able to see the setup, I would guess that insted of the clip on the Factory setup, you would inset the cable, and tighten the screw against the cable sleeve.
