About to take the dive again and scoop up another 78 Eldorado. The speedometer is not working on it tho. Probably just a speedometer cable. Are those connected to the odometer? B/c the mileage shows 40k
Beauty! I’ll have to check that out. So what we are saying is if the Speedo cable is inop. The odometer is not turning over, correct?My understanding is the drive for the speedometer/odometer (same cable) comes from the cruise control box. There same cable enables the function for both speedometer and odometer. If the cruise "box" is the issue you may not even need a new cable. Important because normally there is at least a somewhat difficult to reach spring clip which normally keeps the speedometer cable end connected to the instrument cluster. It's typically a spring clip fastened on one side an so it creates an angle when "free". When you push it the spring is perpendicular to the cable end so the cable passes through; release and it won't let the speedometer end back out. So if it's the cruise box only you shouldn't need to work on the dash/cluster end at all as I know.
