ive gone through about 3 speedo cables within the last year. i believe that it is something in the transfer case but not sure. the cables are breaking right in the t-case. it almost seems like the cable is unwinding. theere is about 3/4" of cable where its ok. then the cable breaks. the outside windings are frayed to hell but the center has a very clean break. i thought that if i can find a cable w/ a counter clockwise wind then it may not happen but i dunno :confused:. has any one else had similar problems?? i am out of ideas so any help is greatly appreciated.

are you just replaceing your cable or the outside covering also? I had my exhaust melt into the outer cable and would eat the actual cable up.

well on my 2.8 it was pushed against the exhaust on the drivers side. remeber this is a v6 and the header and y pipe is on the drivers side also.

do you have it routed with any sharp curves? that could also be causing it to bind up.
