Speedometer Cable... DOH!!!

I disconnected my speedometer cable assembly from my speed sensor assembly like an idiot. I can put it back in, but I don't know how to get the cotter pin back in. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? It's where the speedometer cable connects at the transfer case, right before the driven gear. If you have no idea what I'm talking about I'm not suprised. Any help and expierence is appreciated, hopefully I can get this thing back in.

Got it! Had to put the cotter pin in first and then jam the speedometer cable assembly through it. Pain in the [censored].

Stop messin' with the speedo to try and make that 302 appear like its going faster than it is. Just drop that darn 460 in and come wheelin' with us. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Speedometer Cable... DOH!!!

Hahaha... I know. By now I could have had a 460 in, still waiting for the shop to call and tell me the 347 is ready. It's kinda good though, cuz now I'm fixing all the broke things that I've neglected. I've also found some really loose lug nuts, possible fuel line leak, and a cracked driveshaft u-joint while tinkering around. Really glad I found those before I was mashing my BRONCO down the road testing the new stroker. [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

I think I'll also be taking off my bumper and hitch. I never realized how much they decrease departure angle.
