Speedo No Go

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Haven't checked the upper cable yet, but noticed a small leak coming fron the tranny where the lower cables goes. Is it necessary to remove the any of the dash components to get to the spot where the upper cable runs into the speedo. I can reach it from under the dash. Don't want to turn something simple into a problem, seeing that I'm doing alot of things on my own and with the help of Hotrodders Forum

If you do need to remove stuff it shouldn't be all that much, I am guessing you don't have air conditioning, the speedo cable attaches to the speedo by just sliding it on to the rear of the speedometer, removing it requires a contortionist to assist you if you are very large, but you may be able to remove it with 1 hand.

Push in on the clip retainer, and pull the speedo cable off the back of the speedometer housing.

I am guessing you have a different cable layout than the 2 I am working on at the monent, an 87 K10 truck and an 88 R-1500 Suburban, both of these have a 2-piece cable connected to the transmission, each other, and then at the back of the speedometer. Both of these are A/C equipped and have limited room to reach up behind the dash from underneath because of the run going to the outlet at the bottom left of the instrument panel. I had 2 factory cruise equipped cars that had the transducer that the lower speedo cable ran into and then out of to the speedometer.

I'll head out in a bit to the shop and take a pic of the backside of one of the instrument panels I have laying around.

SURE, I went out there last night and took pics for this and another thread I responded to and forgot to come back in here and post the pic pertaining to this thread.

Every gauge cluster I have is the clip retainer style like this one is, I have them in both idiot light and gauge styles and from 1975 to 1988.
