1939 super 8 with R11 overdrive. Need speedometer cable. What is the correct length? Ordered one from Max Merritt and it was too long

Well, I would rephrase word proper with the word acceptable. The length would depend on the differences between a proper for 39 Borg Warner R6 and the later R11. If the speedometer cable connection to the R11 is on same side as the original R6, then the original length (per Stewart Warner data) of 88.5in should work.
Hope this helps,
Pat

thank you for the reply. I have been experiencing technical difficulty and just now got back online. I am thinking there may be a shop that makes cables.

Bill's Cables can do it: (937) 726-2136,

So long as you are sure of dimensions. Can also modify existing cable.

Morning... I have checked the PACKARD Parts manual for my 115c and there is a listing for the cables for a number of years and model numbers showing the cable, (inner) and case (outer) that gives the length for each as a combination.
Manual is in my shop so don't have ready access to page number .
Hope this helps
Larry
