leak

Most of the sppdo housings have an inner and outer seal.
Also the speedo housing can whear out.
Look for an oval opening in the houling.

If you take the cable off the tranny and remove the retainer bolt and plate you can then remove the speedo gear and housing. There is a seal in the housing that is probably your problem. Replace it and the o-ring and you should be fixed up.The seal keeps oil from getting into the cable. Hope this helps.

When my TH350 speedo cable was leaking, I had to replace the speedo gear. It was worn so bad it would not seal. Only a couple of bucks at the Chevy dealer.
