Hi,

Some of you replied to my post last night concerning my speedometer in my 66 jumping about 10 mph and making a sound... "click...click...click...click...click".

I had high hopes after reading the replies. I removed the cable, greased it very well and dripped a couple of 3 in 1 oil in the back of the speedometer where the cable installs.

Well... as luck would have it, the darn thing is still doing it. What do I need to replace? The cable or the speedometer or something else? I know the gear down at the transmission is good, it is a brand new Ford part that I just installed about 2 months ago. Well... I say I know it's good, I had better check it out if damage to it could cause my problem.

Thanks for your time,
John Thomas

First, check the cable housing to be sure it does not have any kinks or sharp bends in it. Remove the housing from the rear of the speedometer and check to be sure the input turns smooth and freely by hand. Is the flex cable smooth and free of frayed wires or other problems?

Everything seems smooth and free, no kinks or frays either.

Thanks,
John Thomas
