: Speedo Cable

05-15-06, 01:40 PM
Guys, I have been working on the 80 Coupe that I bought and need to grease or replace the speedometer cable. As I drive it, the cable makes the noise and I need to know how to grease it. Would you recommend greasing it or replacing it?? Thanks for the info.

You'll have to pull the speedometer or somehow remove the cable from the dash side. Once removed you can inspect for damage, and lubricate if needed. Greasing usually does the trick, unless it bent or wippy. Wippy means when you twirl it from the ends it jumps rather than turning smoothly.

There is a special speedometer grease. however, I've had good success with Lubriplate grease.
