    Upper Speedometer Cable Length

    Hello everyone:

    I am in the process of adding cruise control to 4194. I am planning on removing the Lambda counter and using a Rostra cable mounted sensor in the to generate the speed signal. While the lower speedometer cable uses the same fitting as the Rostra sensor, the upper cable has both a different fitting and a different style cable end. When I installed this system on 5052 a few years back, I swapped out upper speedometer cable end and modified the cable input on the sensor. With 4194 I would rather just replace the upper cable entirely.

    Thus, if somebody has an upper cable on the shelf, could you measure it and let me know the overall length?

    Thanks,

    Andrew
