Questions: I got a 53 willys pickup truck 4x4 I’m trying to restore to get it back on the road. The original speedometer cable which has a metal case measures at 74 inches and I have bought a 60in while back from another jeep parts carrier and it was too short. Do you guys by chance got a 74 inch cable?

Sounds like something is unoriginal on your Willys Truck. Email firstname.lastname@example.org pics of your vehicle and we can help. 60" is correct.

Questions: I would like to add a 90 degree adapter off the transfer case so the cable is under less stress. Do you know of a part number of such adapter or at least the thread pitch of the male transfer case hook up and the pitch of the speedometer threads?

Sorry, I don't think this will work due to the length of the inner cable.

Sounds like you have an unoriginal speedometer cable on there. This will be the proper one for these vehicles with original drivetrain.

Questions: Bought this from you and installed it today. The reading is always 10mph more than what I'm actually going. Any ideas as to why this might be or how I could fix it?
Question By: Nick on Jan 28 2012 12:00 AM
It is due to your tire size. You must have unoriginal tires on there.
