I'm removing the two part speedometre cable on my 76 TR6 and will replace it with a single cable with an overdrive transmission to be installed during winter. Do I use a 69" or a 72" cable with the O/D trans; I already have a right angle adaptor that I could use.

What should I use?

Thanks

Bonjour Serge,

For OD you want the longer or longest cable and thread it over the transmission to come up thru the firewall, not under. Also make certain you insert the copper washer for the Angle Drive between the OD Driven Gear to prevent it from cracking in two pieces per the BL Technical Service Bulletin. winking smiley

Toujours mon plaisir d'aider les autres avec des connaissances partagées. As your OD conversion progresses, please reach out for any head scratching solutions as we're all here to make sure you end up enjoying a fun drive.

Québec must be beautiful this time of year as I admire your city, great food and love the golf courses. thumbs up
