Q: Speedo Cable Lubrication
Does anyone of you guys know how to fix my nervous speedo dial? Driving slow or fast doesn’t matter I can’t get a steady reading.
A: Many times nervous needle is caused by a dry speedometer cable. Try pulling and lubing the inner cable with quality speedo lube and reinstalling. This has fixed my needle problems on 3 different cars. Just looking at a part of a restoration that is sometimes overlooked, and a cable breaking because it is dry is no fun either.
