Thanks Howard, I had forgotten about the oil hole. I really need to pull that cable and get it done. I drove the Panama for a few miles today and the cable/speedo is getting much worse.

And thanks Tom!

In other news I got sick of fighting the original positive battery cable, and its poor connection. Starting became unreliable and I kept having to mess with the cable to get it to work.

I ordered a 2-0 cable from BatteryCablesUSA (33" length) and it came within 3 days. I know the original is 1-0, but I wanted extra juice so I went with the 2-0. Cable quality is fantastic.

The car started almost immediately, which never happens on a cold start. So far so good. That was $30 well spent.
