Inner Speedo Cable

Has anyone made an inner cable for the speedo? I've only got remnants, so I have to build a new one.

The ends on this site


(STW-0003 & STW-0004) look like the right ones. I see Restoration Supply Company have the drive cable. Any ideas on crimping the ends onto the cable? Does someone have sketch of a one off crimper that can be made?

Also is there anything else on the inner cable other that the drive and driven ends? I've got bits of a cable that has a 2 small washers on the cable.

Re: Inner Speedo Cable

Up here just went to "jobber" (i.e. Bumper to Bumper) and bought standard inner cable (10-15 dollars) and ends were un-soldered from old cable and re-soldered on cut to length new cable. 5000 miles ago and alls well.
