Cable for Auto Meter Speedometer
« on: April 24, 2013 - 06:57:26 AM »
I've purchased an Auto Meter Sport Sport-Comp mechanical speedometer for my 73 street/strip Barracuda. I need a speedometer cable that is threaded on both ends. Has anyone used this speedo? If so, where did you purchase the cable?  Thanks in advance for all your help.

The speedos in ALL our Australian Valiants had the same cable connection as the Autometer requires.
These had a 1/8" drive square screw on end at the speedo.
I know at some stage the US cars switched to a click on plastic fitting.
Some of your old mopars I'm guessing 1966 and earlier speedo cables should fit staight up.
You could order one from Australia but that would be too expensive.
Our cables are a bit longer too since we are Right hand drive.
Burnouts are cool but Traction is the Action

Strawdawg has it right. I have the same setup and I followed what he did and it works great and was cheap.

Rock Auto has the ATP Y803 (83") for $9.90. They also have part #ATP Y804 (63") for $9.36. According to my rough measurement I think I need the 63" cable. Does this sound correct?

Bit late, but for future notice, I found Y-804 to fit better and was easier to keep away from the headers.
