XA Speedo cables

Just wondering if xa C4/C10 (whatever the F it is - pan fill C4?) sedan and coupe speedo cables are one and the same.

I wouldve thought they are as there is no difference in firewall is there? Therefore overall length to trans would be exactly the same? Someone tried telling me they are different, just wanna know before i buy.

Cheers

Re: XA Speedo cables

i would be 99% sure that they are the same.

the coupe is longer than the sedan but that is behind the gearbox mount. needs a longer tailshaft, every thing else should be the same.

Sorry, but that couldn't be more wrong. Both 2 door and 4 doors have the same wheelbase. Therefore the same tailshaft. The longer ones are ute/wagon/fairlane and LTD. The tailshaft length stayed the same for years (plus or minus a few mm for 9" vehicles- but you can interchange anyway). You could fit the tailshaft from an EA in your XB if you wanted......

If you were talking about Datsun (or similar) then I would agree. The tailshaft from a 1200 coupe is longer than the one from a 1200 sedan. But this is Fordforums.

Re: XA Speedo cables

spot on. I've used a sedan tailshaft in a coupe. Cables are exactly the same but I think speedo cables maybe different but only from manual to auto?

Re: XA Speedo cables

The diffrent length cables are auto or manual ones only. no diffrent sizes for sedand and wagons etc....the wheelbase has nothing to do with the speedo cable.


Auto is longer.
