  • AA speedo cable and housing.

    Well, working on the big yellow AA today was wondering why the speedo didn't work.

    So, I pull the speedo out to find it works great, but the cable has this huge kink that has actually broken the housing right at the top where the twist comes to the sleeve. I seriously can't understand how someone can do that kind of damage to the housing. Now, I can see how a cable would break from being all dried out and rusty, but this is ridiculous.

    Anyway, back to the posting. I believe we are now looking for a complete speedo cable and housing for this '29AA with the oval speedo.

    Mark may chime in on this as it is his truck.

    Oh, if someone can verify the length at 113", I see Bratton's carries them. Might not need this call out.

        Thanks SS, I'll keep an eye out for your posting the length.

      Well, just learned from Bratton's today that the full cables are not in stock and no word on when they might get any, so back to square one. Still need a 113" speedo cable for a early "30 AA. I will be making some calls tomorrow, so this is subject to change and I will update as needed.

        113" seems to long, he parts book shows 113.5" for the long wheel base trucks.
