Howdy Folks.
Just installed a Tremec 600 in my 51 3100 and now my speedo cable is about 2" to short. Is there an over the counter fix here? Has anyone else dealt with this God forbidden, life altering dilemma?

Not really. You should be able to locate a longer one fairly easily. Remove yours, measure and add 10 inches not 2.

You might find something from a 4x4 website, Does the Tremec have a different connector? I personally would prefer a single cable, but an extension might be more economical. A quick web search revealed an extension: https://www.dakotadigital.com/index...40/category_id=311/mode=prod/prd1140.htm

or a new longer cable:

FYI, I got a 73" cable from Jegs that is the perfect length and works perfect.

Don't let this life altering experience derail you. God forbidding, you will be better from it. Trust me.
