Speedometer problems, what is this?

I had to replace the speedo cable on my '50 cause the previous owner had none in it. When I unscrewed the cable housing from the speedo in the back I noticed it was pretty loose. I kept on loosening it and later on realized that there was a bronze looking collar on the thread I didnt make much of it and proceeded to cut and crimp my new cable. I slid it in and engaged it in the tranny. Then I went on to screw the cable casing onto the speedo again and found that I could not tighten it all the way. I think it's cause of this funky bronze strip around it. Is this normal? Should that piece there be to prevent the cable to screw on all the way?






Mike

Lots of views and NO responses so I must not be the only one......

Sorry about the pictures, its behind the dash and way up so I kinda guessed where I was pointing the camera at. I took it off today, and re-installed the cable and it tightened up good, guess it'll work
