    rebuilt a 1992 700r, it's bolted to the engine (1973 Z28), now I'm noticing that the Speedometer Cable is going to be a few inches too SHORT ! (the th350 that was in it had a "reduction box" at the trans tail housing for some reason) a 90 degree thing that is not 1-1. What is the longest 1 piece Speedometer cable with housing I can order for this set up ? HELP ! Thanks

    You can get speedometer cables in just about any length you need for your application. Figure out the length you want and pick one up at your local auto parts store.

    that yellow one reminds me of my very first Camaro, bought it "off the lot" in 1970 (window sticker $4600. Baldwyn), yellow /black stripes, No Power Anything ! just power ! Those were the Days !
    trying to find a cable in the "local stores" is, well,.... just finding anyone with a brain that knows something besides how to punch "Keys" is almost impossible. upper /lower/ length,trans,engine, I tell them give me one 78" long, they get me a cut to length "inner" cable ! LOL seems people that actually Work On Cars don't work in parts stores.
