    I put a 500 inch caddy in my 66 ford pickup and was wondering if they make an adapter or something so I can hook my ford spedometer cable to the turbo 400 or if you have to special order a cable with the desired ends. and in either case who to call. thanx

    Ditch the Ford cable and a standard GM cable of the correct length should work.

    just make sure its a cable for an OLD GM, mid 60s and back should do it. Later GMs had a funky clip connection at the speedo, which didn't use a threaded nut.
