So.. you probably noticed my list of questions before.. Got everything (about) figured out now. One of my questions had to do with the speedometer, and the fact that is always read 0.

Well.. I finally went ahead and tested it manually.. I pulled the cable out, and spun the inside piece of the speed sensor by hand. Left the door open so I could see if the "door open" would go off. Sure enough, it did. Noticing it looked like the cable was a little low in the assembly, I pulled the cable a little tighter so it stuck out a little over the top, put it back together, and then I had speedo for about.. eh.. 5 secs in reverse, a quickie in drive, then gone again. Pulled it apart again, and noticed it had been sucked right back in.

Now, I have noticed there is a slight leak at my transmission. Really really really slow leak it looks like. I haven't gotten a chance to get under it yet (been working all day, and won't be able to get out to the shop to throw it on ramps until at least weds) but noticed that it seemed to be almost dripping down the outside of the speedo cable casing. Now, I remember the P/O mentioning something about the leak @ the transmission being the reason the speedometer wasn't working...

Is that possible?

Otherwise, what would be my course of action to get the speedo working, cable casing shorter, whatever I need to do to make it consistantly spin and give me some speedometer action?

Thanks!

I know this must sound like a silly question, but I still haven't figured out just why the cable seems to be a little shorter than it should be. Any ideas? Thanks!
