Hi all, I want to change my speedo cable on my 3 syncro non overdrive gearbox, iv heard rumours of using a longer od cable will allow me to do this?
Is this true for an early car?

Thanks

Yes, it is true for early cars. I've had my '67 B for over 46 years now. I used the longer OD cable to eliminate the troublesome angle drive from the system entirely. RAY

This is how it will look without the angle drive. This is a 4 sync OD trans but yours will be similar. I used a piece of split tubing to protect the speedo cable from the frame and secured the tubing with a cable tie after the picture was taken. Eliminating the angle drive cured my bouncing speedometer, too.

Once you have the new cable, matching up the washer should be easy. RAY
