Mopar Action On-line – Tech Questions


Tech Question

Paul Wade II, North Charleston, SC, 1984 Dodge D-100 318

I am having a problem with my speedometer cable. I replaced theoriginal cable with a new one and one month later the cable twisted in thecover. I would like to know what would cause the cable to twist inside ofthe sheath. Also when I pulled it off of the transmission that end wastwisted also. Any help would be appreciated in this matter.

Paul, assuming that you didn’t route it into a knot, or have it resting onan exhaust component, there’s really only two possibilities…

(1) you didn’t lube it (if non-Mopar cable)


(2) the head siezed.
