Product Description

Time for a new speedo cable?
If your speedometer is not reading or the needle is jumping all over the place, chances are you need to replace the speedometer cable. This reproduction Mustang speedometer cable is a direct replacement for your 79-85 Mustang with carburetor and without cruise control. The cable to transmission o-ring & firewall grommet are not included.

Does My Mustang Have A Speed Sensor?
All 1979-93 Mustangs that came equipped with EFI(electronic fuel injection) will have a speed sensor. If your 1979-85 Mustang with carburetor came equipped with cruise control, then it will also have a speed sensor. The only Mustangs that did not have a speed sensor were 1979-85 Mustangs with carburetor and without cruise control.

Note
The inner cable must be removed from the outer sheath & lubricated with proper cable lubricant that is included. Failure to do so will cause a jumpy speedo needle & short cable life. This cable is 76" in length from end to end.

Installation Note
Be very careful with the routing. If it comes within 1" of any exhaust component, it will need a fiber-based heat shield installed in that area, and 6" past both directions for protection. Also any bends should be long a sweeping, sharp turns will cause immediate cable failure.

Properly lubricating the cable consists of removing the inner part of the cable from the outer sleeve (in a clean area) and using 1/3 to 1/2 of the bottle of supplied lubricant on the cable.

Application
- Fits 1979-1985 Mustang with carburetor and without cruise control.

5 Stars   Perfect- but I got wrong one!

This was fine, but is not for speed sensor equipped cars. If you don't have a speed sensor then this will be fine. Lube is included in the package (liquid Graphite). Caution; not running speed sensor MAY cause you a problem with stalling/cutting out after deceleration, the speed sensor talks to the computer and kicks the idle up after you slow down. (like a quick stop for a traffic light/or panic stop). Some cars will run without it, but mine didn't ! It was b^*%# to restart as well. Put speed sensor back in, and reset computer(pull + cable for 10 mins) and all was fine again. Hope this helps someone out there. Lots of good info on the speed sensor in Ford forums on-line, a quick Search will give you more info.-Johnny NH

Replaced it because old one was all torn apart. It fixed my problem for alil still bounces but half what it was before, the stick of lubrication isn't that great it dripped right off. Other than that not bad for the price you get what you pay for. Fyi use a diffrent lubricante
