Unhappy Speedo Cable Help Needed!!

I cannot seem to find the right speedo cable for my 1963 F100. Parts co. XXX sent on ethat had a "screw-on" sholder on the trans end, musch like the top. I thought I found a NOS one at a swap meet (see my gallery for a picture of it on top, with mine underneath, with my gear and clip). What did I get at the Swap Meet? The FOMOCO box is marked C3TZ I7260ED 409841. What should I be looking for? HELP!!!

The speedo cable on my 63F100 3 sp has a gear drive that looks like 17322-B so maybe look for a C3TZ-e17322-B. This has a retainer ring that screws to the case holding the gear drive in place. Concours Parts page 62

I had problems getting one for my 66 w/ 390 C6
It has a screw on type for the speedometer, and the transmission had a push in type w/ a clip
Go to a Orieillys and take the old one with you.
Thats what I did.... they ordered me one, dont know what it was for tho.. cuz my 390 C6 wasnt original setup.
Let me know... maybe I can help you out a bit if you dont have a parts store that will do matching for you

I wasn't trying to get you in trouble, just kinda pointing to the forum rules. Thats kinda considered advertising...
I got in trouble for saying I would have to sell something if I didnt use it... they changed it to say "get rit of it" so it wouldnt be a form of advertisement
Not trying to get you in trouble... trying to keep you OUT of trouble
