1960 speedo cable 3spd/man

Hello, it's been a while since i've been here. One of my best sources for info on F100s. My speedometer died on me i'm thinking the cable may have finally bit the dust. I've looked online for a new cable and Mac's had them but now they're "discontinued". Does anyone know of another source that might have a speedo cable?

More than one F100 speedo cable: 6 1/2' or 8' bed, 2WD or 4WD, 3 M/T or 3 M/T with overdrive?

Inside the speedo cable housing is a woven steel core that is supposed to be lubed every so often. When the lube dries out, the core binds up inside the housing and snaps.

Autoparts stores sell a universal woven steel core kit. Cut it to length, coat with a fine film of graphite, install in housing.
