    You can try lubing the cable, but it could be the speedo head itself.

    Noise is not normal.

    I got under the dash and unscrewed the cable, and on my 72 I could pull it through the fife wall...then I sprayed oil down the tube and let it sit all night...no more clicking... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
