    I'm Going to install an autometer mechanical speedometer in my 70 Duster and need to buy a new cable to fit the gauge. Does anyone know what a good length to use is? The supplier has them in various lengths. He says the most popular are 63" or 83" I can crawl under the car and do some measuring but I'm hoping someone has already done it. Thanks

      Here is an old thread. Looks like most guys are saying 63" is the way to go.

      Whats the proper length speedo cable
