A week or so after getting some clutch work done last summer, my speedo cable broke right near where it connects to the Xcase. I let it go for a few months and then put another OEM cable in, and now that one just broke. Of course, there isn't much slack in the OEM speedo cable, the result being that it bends pretty sharply where it connects to the Xcase. (I think the Toyota engineers forgot that LHD clusters would be farther away!!!) I thought my mechanic had routed it wrong when he put everything back together last summer (he ran it over the tranny and along the passenger side to the Xcase) so when I put the new one in I ran it along the driver's side of the tranny and under to get to the Xcase connection, but still there was very little slack. What's going on? Right before the new one snapped, I had some speedo gauge chatter, but I thought that was just the very cold weather we were having (it went away when truck warmed up). Is this just bad luck? Or is there an ideal way to route it? Is there some problem I'm not aware of? ??? I'm going to put in an aftermarket cable that's a bit longer but of inferior quality for the time being.
