This is what I got going on. I have a 87 Accord DX hatchback w/carb and the speedometer cable broke. So I purchased a new one from rockauto.com part no. atp Y-850 and received the new cable and it seems to be 40 inches shorter than the 100 inch O.E.M. cable. So the new cable is 60 inches long. The O.E.M. cable runs from the dash pod through fire wall along driverside around front of engine to passenger side and down to transmission. The new cable runs from the dash pod through fire wall along driverside to front of engine and stops, also their is no cruise control. The end connections look the same the only difference is the cable length. So I contacted rockauto.com told them whats going on and there gonna get back with me. They have been real helpful. I just wanted to know if any of you hade this problem. I thought about rerouting it but I don't know. Any solutions please let me know.
