What speedo cable should I use (And how do I identify it) when I replace the 72 FMX in my 69 mach 1 with the correct 4sp toploader?

Thanks ya'll

I don't know off hand, but on my 66, the C4 has the cable going in on the drivers side. The toploader, on the other hand, is on the passenger side and a LOT longer. I would think that's the difference with the FMX too.

Nope, I'm almost 100% sure (going from memory, cars not here) that the speedo cable for an FMX is on the passengers side... Either that or I had the car turned around last time I yanked it out, LOL, which is a possibility. I can check for sure soon here.

When I swapped to a toploader from an FMX on my 73 (the toploader was a 72 and the fmx was a 73) I was able to use the same cable, although it does not seem exactly right. But it works well so far. It was on the passengers side on both of them.
