Okay, thanks for the tip.  I just had it lubed about a year
ago, and now it's going nuts again.  I'm pretty sure I can
handle this myself (weather permitting), I just need something
really thick and greasy I would imagine...

You don't want "thick and greasy" on speedo cables. You want "Dry and
slippery" like as in graphite lubes. They go on wet to deliver themselves
and then the water dries out and leaves the graphite behind to lube. In the
cold the grease can drag and cause problems. Most stores have Speedometer
lube in small tubes which is graphite like I said, OR you can use "Lock-eze"
as for any lock or padlock lubing. It comes in a small blue can and squirts
out like sewing machine oil. I use it alot for lubing things in shop. You
have to remove the cable from the speedo head and let this stuff drip down
in till you think you have enough. OR, pull cable all the way out and clean
with thinner or whatever and maybe remove other end from tranny and force
thinner down the sheath too to clean any old grease out before new lube is
used. Make sure you have no sharp kinks or bends in housing to cause
binding. I have used white grease that won't get stiff in cold but the
graphite works best.
