If you have a pre-93 Toyota Land Cruiser, or other Toyota 4WD truck with a speedometer cable, then you likely know all about that really annoying squeaking from the speedometer. It juts wont shut up! You've tried repositioning it. You've tried using the little graphite tube and maybe you'll get a temporary relief. But it never lasts.
Why does the speed cable squeal? Basically the wound stainless steel cable wears out the PTFE coating inside the lining of the outer sheath. This occurs wherever there is the tightest curve point of the cable. Every speedo cable has that one "tight" curve somewhere. The cable slaps around and spins and wears a groove into the PTFE lining. There is your noise.
So what's the solution? Well its time to rip out the instrument panel and thread in a new speedo cable of course. Except...there is no factory replacement and in some cases no aftermarket replacements. So now what?
Grease the cable with this little tool the Speedo-Luber! During testing we machined up a neat little tool that would allow us to grease the cable from the instrument panel. But that didn't work because the grease pushed out from the coupling on the cable. Big fail. Then we moved onto the bottom end of the cable at the transfer case. A quick machining to screw into the cable end and threaded in a zerc and what do you know? Couple pumps of grease and the noise is gone. Gone gone. What kind of grease? PTFE is ideal although we just used moly that we had in the grease gun ready to go.
You only need a couple pumps of grease and the machined twist AND drive direction of the stainless cable will actually push grease up to where you need it. Don't overfill it like we experimented with :P
