Replaced my speedo cable as the old one broke. This seems to just make it without room to spare and as it is pretty well stretched I think it is leaking. The gauge is still having issues as it was before the old one broke, so for the time being I’m looking for a cap to blank it off.

Does anyone know what size/pitch these threads are? Is it BSPT like the engine block?

Thanks!

I cut the old cable, used the end piece and siliconed a quarter in there and screwed it on, might of been a nickel.

I tapped mine and put in a 3/4 npt pipe plug.
And now that I just taking and seeing this pic, I gotta go see if that really is a crack there.

I grabbed an M20 nut and it’s too small/ too corse. I was able to try it on a parts T case housing I had stashed away. I’m thinking it’s an M22 fine thread, so I am going to find a cap nut in that size and give it as shot. I’ll report back.

Clearly not the right pitch

I never noticed but the parts T case, which is missing just about everything else, had this busted speedo cable extension. Does anyone still make these? It measures a bit under 22

If that doesn’t work… the nickel does fit with a little filling

Nevada Speedometer, Sparks NV can make any cable needed. They've made a few T-case shorties for me. Also I think Marin Crawlers, BTBpro.com has them also.

Trail Gear and Advanced adapters make a Toyota speedo extension cable. But they are more than a nickel...
