Would a 67 Camaro, 4.10 geared use the external speedo cable reducer?
My 69Z has the red plastic gear for 4.10 but no external reduction.

I have never seen a car come with that device. Why? they have gears for all factory ratios. I think that device would be for non factory gears like 586 or 614?

It depended on the trans and rear ratio along with tire size whether or not it got the reducer. The M20 4.10 69 Z with low miles I restored did not have a reducer.

If the car originally had 14" tires, it would use an adapter, with 4:10 gears.

This is what I thought. My 67 has 14" tires with 4.10 and none of the avail. trans. gears are correct. the 70 LS6 4.10 used this adaptor.
