    Default Speedo cables - R17

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    What speedo cables will fit into a ('77) R17?

    And...

    Where can one be sourced from?

    Thanks

    You can get them made up if you have the two end fittings.

    The fittings are the same as a R12 that may be easier to find.

    The cable is longer in a R17 so need to measure

    Also remember there is two types of speedo cable for the R12 (1) VDO speedo (2) Jeager speedo

    You will most likely need the Jeager type

    Yes it will be the Jaeger and you obviously need the cable for RHD.
    The RHD cable is longer the the LHD version.

    Cheers all. Shot old mate an email to see if he'll do the cable for RHD cars, if not will get the old one rebuilt by an instrument specialist. It has Jaeger gauges yes.
