Can someone tell me where I can find a correct speedometer cable grommet for my 64 Valiant? Neither from DTM is correct. Mine has a 1 1/4" hole in the firewall.

I ran into the same issue. I got an NOS speedo cable with the correct part number on the package and it had the wrong grommet too! I ended up using a nice used one with the correct grommet. It doesn't look like it would be all that easy to swap the grommet with the size of the nuts on each end.

I wanted to come back here and update......like people around here seldom do. I found the dead correct speedometer cable grommet at Van's auto. It was 24 bucks. Kinda high for just a grommet but it's the RIGHT one and it didn't split going on. Works real good. You have to actually pick up the phone and CALL THEM though, because they aren't on the web site and the guy actually said at first they didn't have them. Then he remembered something, put me on hold and came back and said he had the right one....and it is.
