[Healeys] cable

Don't disagree, but just for the record, you can get the cable--with 
sheath--off from below.  The fitting should be finger tight, but if it's 
torqued on you can use small channel lock pliers.  It's tight, but I've 
done it.

If you just need to clean/lube the inner cable, simply unscrew the 
sheath from the back of the speedo and pull the inner cable out.  
Replacement is the opposite of removal.
