  • NorthEast oval Speedometer cable

    I need a Speedometer cable and housing for a Northeast Oval speedometer without trip odometer for fine point judging.

      The cable I need only worked with the NorthEast Oval speedometer without trip odometer used from December 1929-June 1930. It uses internal threads on both ends of the cable housing. Picture of cable end shows NE logo in circle. Pictures of back side of speedometer shows external threads.

        Perhaps, if you checked the for sale areas of this site, "The Restorer" magazine, The "Model A News" magazine and a few other sites such as AACA for ads from speedometer rebuilders and gave them a call/send an email, they may be able to help you. Everyone I know who repairs Model A Ford sub-assemblies has a box/shelf/drawer for orphan parts left over from previous buys, trade-ins, or repairs. Good luck!

            Speedo Cable
            by Fixitphil
            Henry tells me in his "Model A Instruction Book" that I should lube the speedo cable every 5,000 miles. I don't know if mine has ever been lubed but I want to do all "Henry" says. What is the most effective way to perform this vital fete?
            He also tells me that I should lube and re-calibrate the speedo itself every 10,000 miles?? Newby that needs some help!
            Thanks, ...

            Inside speedometer cable too short?
            by Bobsie
            Trying to get my speedometer working on my '31 Vicky. I assembled everything took a drive, speedometer worked for a couple of miles then quit. Changed nothing except to install a speedometer cable ordered from Mike's.

            Troubleshooting, took the cable off the speedometer in the dash, a quick drive and clearly the inside cable spins. Took the speedometer out and ran it with my drill and...

            Part Warning
            by DaWizard
            Since this is the second speedo cable I have purchased from Moss, I was informed they get them from Snyder's, so I am sending out this warning. The internal cable for the 28/29 is too short if you use the stock outer cable!!

            It will fit but when pushed all the way into the depth of the turtle, it is short in making it all the way into the speedo square and you need it all the way into

            Pop out cable clamp
            by Aretino
            Does the pop out cable clamp that is secured by a head nut serve any significant purpose other than holding the cable?

            Speedometer Cable
            by KB9JLO
            OK I give up. Where does the speedometer cable go? I don't have one so I can't see where it should be...
            I assumed it went to the transmission but I don't think that's correct.
            I'm just curious - Got the Mike's email today for the speedometer cable special - figured out it's not the one for me. And then got to wondering where the heck it went.

            Speedo not moving...
            by Beauford
            Ok so I went for a short cruise as my vehicle is not DMV approved yet. The rebuilt speed does not work. It bench tested beautifully with a drill. I insert cable in speedo first and then the underside. I have rear on jackstands and it will go for a second and its like the cable jumps out. I'm assuming the speedo end. Any suggestions?

            RGJS - Speedometer Casing/Cable Finish?
            by Neil Wilson
            Anyone know where speedometer casing/cable finish information is in the RGJS (i.e. this is the casing/cable from the speedometer to the torque tube).

            Help removing Speedo cable from Fordomatic
            by CSPIDY
            I am having a dickens of a time getting the speedometer end out of the transmission on my 57 bird. The clip came off with ease but adapter is stuck tight in the tranny. I’ve pre soaked with PB blaster but still won’t budge. I will try some heat. Just don’t want to destroy it.
