I'm putting a cruise control in the 78 and need to shorten the speedometer cable. What is the best option, to shorten the cable I have, buy a cable for the length I need, or buy a kit and make my own?

You can get a new cable set.

Thank you. I have the short cable from the Speedometer to the cruise box. I think I might try making the other one.

I forgot, is there anything in particular I need to do to get the old cable out thru the firewall?

Will the rubber grommet pull out of the firewall?

Where are speedometer cables available to fit a Rostra 1223 cruise control?
