Speedometer Cable

(1/2) > >>

I had to replace the speedometer cable on my 1964 1/2.  I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I might find a diagram of how the cable runs in the under carriage.  Right now it is hanging very lose and I don't want it to ride on the exhaust pipes.
Thank you.

First of all, welcome to the forurn. You can route that cable through any tunnel you want to take out the slack.  Just use common sense. 

What transmission do you have? Speedometer cables for manual and automatic transmissions are routed different.

My Mustang has a 260 4 speed top loader transmission

Your speedometer cable comes out of the right hand side of the transmission, forward over the top of the bell housing and into a hole in the firewall to the speedometer. There is a clip attached to one of the bell housing bolts near the starter. An automatic or a three speed manual comes out on the left hand side, forward to the firewall then up. They use different holes on the firewall.
