  • Speedo/Tach/Gauges: 2R6-12 Speedometer cable help

    Not sure if this is an ugh moment... I ordered a replacement speedometer cable for my 53 2R6-12 Pickup and the package arrived in the UK today. After work, I took the box outside and after undoing both ends of my old cable, I quickly saw that what I was sent in the box, didn't match what was already on my truck - ugh! I have 4-on-the-floor manual with no overdrive (another ugh!). So, some pics of what I've got and I'd be interested to read if anyone might know if what I have is correct, incorrect and any other insights... thanks for any help I have contacted the sellers with the same photos, but am interested to learn more about the truck

    You appear to have a speedo cable meant for a Flight-o-Matic auto trans. I think you'll need to send it back for an exchange.

      Thanks showbizkid…. I'll let the vendors know the good news. It'll cost me twice, to ship it back and then pay import duties again. I was right, it was an ugh moment, lol

        Many other makers used the same cable you need into the mid 1980s. I have one for a Jeep in my GT because it was all I could find in the correct legnth. If I remember right, the top nut is 5/8" and the bottom one is 7/8", just find the legnth you need..
