Gentlemen

For those of you who converted from a power glide to 200-4r....we're you able to get your speedometer to work and how did you do it?

Thanks

Roger.

Speedometer shop should be able to tell you which drive and driven gear combination that you need. Need to know rear end gear ratio and tire diameter as well. They are usually color coded so it probably helps to know what you have installed when you call them. I am sure if you google it you can come up with something like this:

Thanks for that ragtp66 but I should have been a little clearer.

The problem is with the speedometer cable. My '60 cable won't hook-up to my 200-4r gear because it's metric and comes from a 1987 Monte Carlo.

Maybe in the U.S. the Monte Carlo 200-4r is different (not metric) and maybe the cable from a '60 Impala works....but my cable won't.

Hope that makes better sense....in short I have a cable issue.

Thanks

Roger.

Roger,

I believe the monte carlo speedo you press on a retainer clip and the pull the speedo cable away from the rear of the dash. I had several 78-85's. When I converted my 58 Belair to a 700r4 I just used a new 58 cable the end where it goes into the trans mated right up and on the 58 there was a nut (smaller in diameter than the trans end). Long story short order a new cable for your year car and you should be fine. I believe the original powerglide and the 2004r are both on the drivers side of the trans. I used the 7062 metal sheath 70" https://show-cars.com/search?query=speedome ter+cab...
