Anybody know if replacement cables are available from anywhere? I have the daunting task of installing a rally timer which requires the outer cable to be cut, a section removed, and the sensor fitted in place in that gap.
Thought I'd make one up before attempting the re-install, which I know is a barst.
Any leads??

And from what I've heard (not done it myself yet) the job of refitting a speedo cable is not the easiest of tasks, either...

...er, yes, Mango. The cable has to pass through two bulkheads iirc, and it is a devil of a job to line up. I plan to pull the existing one through with a mouse or tracer line attached, like electricians use, in the hope the cable can be guided to the second hole. I'm also hoping for some sunshine, leaving Europe and a blonde with big.....
Prob won't do this job till much later in the year, or even next year, as I work abroad at the moment and will be back there in July. I'll report in once I've tackled it.
