Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ford Mustang replica speedometer cable This cable is a replica cable of a Ford original with one exception, it's about 5" too long for a 1965-1966 car and hung down too low in my car when routed like the original. To take up the slack, I've re-routed the cable to take up the slack under the dash.

Hi, I installed SC18 in my stock 1966 289 A code with 3:1 gear ratio. Now the speedometer is off by 10 mph (too low). Before it was fine. 1. What ratio is this set up for? Do I have to change the drive gear in the transmission to match this?

Asked by: harrdware
The speedometer cable shouldn't change what the speedometer reads. Changing the gear by one tooth is equal to about 5mph. Going up teeth will slow down the speedo, going down will speed up the speedo.

Is there a secret to undoing the speedo cable from the back of the instrument panel? When I remove the screws and try to pull out the guages panel, it will only come out an inch or so, not nearly enough to get fingers on it to loosen it.

Asked by: Chuck
Try disconnecting the cable at the transmission than from under the hood push the cable through the firewall far enough to access the nut on the cable.

I would like to know if the speedometer cable (CJ's Part Number: SC18) will fit my 64 1/2 mustang. I have the 3-speed automatic tranny. The title on the part only refers to the 65 and 66 mustang. Thank you

Asked by: Hector4610
Yes this will work.

I was under the impression that NOS speedometer cables had a metallic lining beneath the rubber shroud to help prevent wear. I have used at least 2 of the concours cables previously and after a while they start the "shakes" in the speedometer & wear out.

Asked by: rj1966
Since they're concours cables, they are going to be exactly the same as the original classic Mustang cables, which weren't as high quality as the ones developed today. If you want a more durable cable, go for an aftermarket one versus a concours one.
