Re: Remove the Speedometer cable

For what it's worth, none of the original literature from Stewart Warner, King Sealy, AC Delco, Waltham, Autolite, Northeast, Etc. Called for graphite. Factory treatment was always very light Grease and little or none up at the speedometer so that the cable is not pumping grease into the speedometer magnet shaft. When we rebuild cables, we only use light grease. And there are plenty of speedometers that have come in that have had obvious grease pumped in through the cable up into the magnet and odometer area. I'm not saying graphite is bad, I'm just going with what all my literature indicates and which is readily available today. We use Sil glyde, the silicon-based light Grease.
Again, I hope this helps,
