If it is the cable binding, you will typically hear it making a chirping noise. If no noise is present, I'd inspect the gear on the end of the cable, and also ensure the gauge is functioning properly. I had a similar issue on a 91 years ago and it turned out to be the speedometer itself.

Looking where the cable is going into the transmission if there is an electrical connector close to cable then you have a speed sensor, and the cable will plug directly into the sensor. You can get a good look at what the speed sensor looks like by looking at part # LRS-9731B. If you do not have a speed sensor the end of cable connects directly to the transmission.

Brian, the LRS-17260B cable is for cars using the factory equipped speed sensor which allows the cruise control to operate. For the C4 I would suggest the LRS-17260A cable. http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/LRS-17260A/79-86-Ford-Mustang-Speedometer-Cable. The A cable will need an O-ring to be purchased separately locally for the end that goes into the transmission as well.

These cables do not come pre-lubed and will need to be lubricated before use. If your Transmission does not have a speed sensor attached to it, this cable will not work for your application. The speed sensor will look like this and be located on the drivers side of the transmission.

Bought this and installed. Oiled it as well before the install. It is still jumping around then just drops off. The next time I drive it, it does the same thing. Jumps around then drops off. I have changed the instrument cluster just to see if it was the speedometer itself. It was not. It's doing the same thing. The car is an 88 automatic 5.0 LX. Is the cable adjustable on the end of is it fixed. I'm out of ideas. Can anyone help. I have even called LMR and asked.

I would suggest inspecting the teeth on the gear as well as the drive gear, and as Scott mentioned, inspect the VSS if the car has cruise. It sounds like you have isolated the issue down to one of those components.
