[Healeys] cable

Bob is 100% correct - I went out and re-looked at the car, and from below
would work too.  If you are replacing the angle drive at the same time it
could be a bit fiddly from below as the angle drive goes into the overdrive
right above the rear transmission mount, but I think doable.  I can send
photos if you think this would be helpful.

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

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.
