    Default Identify Speedo Cable Bracket

    So I have this bracket that was hanging from the bad speedo cable that was replaced recently. Can anyone tell me where this mounts to and how it mounts? It doesn't look like it's bolted since it has a square hole at it's top. Name:  IMG_20200106_163059.jpg

    On my 86, there is a bracket that secures the speedo cable to the frame rail in order to keep it away from the headers. I do not remember the square hole though but it does bolt to the frame rail. If I remember I will try and snap a picture of it when I get home.

    The bracket mounts to the floor pan on the driver’s side to keep the speedo cable away from the H-pipe. When I put my ‘86 back together, I used a black plastic ribbed stud to hold it in place...bad choice, as the plastic melted and dropped the speedo cable onto the H-pipe. This was a nice Ford cable, and I’ve been unable to find a replacement as nice.

    When I put the replacement cable on, I bought a short 3/8” flange bolt (verify that’s the right size) and cut the bolt down to make it shorter, then used the bolt to form threads in the hole in the floor pan. Worked great. Oh, you may want to wrap your new cable in one of those shiny heat-resistant sleeves for extra heat protection, assuming your not doing a full restoration to stock.
