A-22 Speedometer Cable Assembly

I am at the point where I would like to get the speedometer working on my 1923 A22. However, a previous owner removed the entire cable assemble from the gauge out. Is there any other cable assembly available that will work on the A-22? Is there a good way to make one from scratch? Advice appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Todd,

I have one if I can find it... Will check Thursday AM and let you know. We have moved and we are still digging through boxes. This cable is complete from end to end.

Yates-
Wonderful. I am in no hurry, and just the thought of moving my clan again gives me a shiver. No fun at all.

Does the cable run in some sort of tube? I presume that may be something I need to 'manufacture'. Thanks for your assistance!

Todd,

To look at one of these original cables, actually they are a chain, go to our links page, then Larrys parts, then A-22 parts...I don't have one on my car but think I will try and monernize when I do.

Re: A-22 Speedometer Cable Assembly

Thanks Bill. Are the chains problematic to the point where modernizing is a good idea? Do you know anything about the sheath/tube?
