Angry Speedo Cable Leak-----

I've seen it over and over now I am plagued with it !
How do you stop the speedo cable from leaking?(th-350)
Is there some sort of washer like you find on a water faucet or a o-ring or something???? Thanks ..

There are "O"rings...one on the housing and one on the gear shaft.

I have the same problem with my 32 and replaced the gear and the O-ring type seal and it still leaked. The OD was fine. It still leaks and I put a little sealant around the O-ring seal. It now leaks just a little bit and I am not sure what to do to completely stop it.

If I pull the cable back out , will it leak big time or just dribble enough for me to try and put on a new seal(o-ring)?I hate F---in' leaks. Why is there fluid by the cable anyway?(dumb question)...Thx

The gear shaft has the gear that is driven inside of the transmission and an extension of the shaft that goes through a seal. That seal along with the od seal is supposed to keep the odometer shaft dry. If you pull the odometer shaft it fits into the the gear shaft with a square end. If the seal is leaking you should be able to see where it is coming from, inside or outside. If you pull the gear shaft assembly, held by the bolt and tab, you will have a big time leak. I jacked up the drivers side of the car to get a big angle and it still leaked out pretty good. Good Luck.

I know what you mean about leaks. I try to keep the car shiny and all I get are nuisance leaks from oil, antifreeze and transmission.
