[Healeys] cable

I have a fiberglass tunnel with the hole and grommet. My BT7 was way ahead of the BJ8. Just letting people know there are alternatives to replacing the speedo cable if you leave the housing in place on any Healey.

They route differently in a BJ8. It goes through a hole in the fiberglass tunnel, not out the front of our metal tunnels.

Not sure what it takes to get to the back of the speedo but on my BT7 I
unscrew the cable housing and pull out the cable. A new one can be slipped
in if the housing is good.

Finally a question I can help with!  As a new Healy owner I've been lurking
on the list for the past few weeks, soaking up the questions and answers as
best a new Healy owner can.

Answer to your question Mike : from above.  Definitely.  Take the seats out,
remove the radio console and transmission tunnel, and all is exposed.  Did
this earlier today on our BJ8 to replace a missing engine/bell housing bolt
and did not take too long at all.
