Where can I get CORRECT speedo cable retaining clips?  I know there are a lot of repops available.  Is one actually a dead ringer for the originals?

Anyone have a line on a set of three originals?

thanks for any help.

The speedo cable routing and clip locations are shown in the M20 section of the Assembly Manual.

Nobody makes a correct one. The repops are JUNK!Way over priced also. Talked to Ricks and they said I didnt know how to install them. I offered to pay the guys airfare to watch him install them. Find some nice used ones and have them replated the correct silver cad. John

That is what I figured.  That is why I don't want repops.

It is the clip labeled #3 on the M20 page 3 locations.
Its application is specific to the speedo cable on the Muncie Transmission.

Still looking for three of these clips for a 69 Camaro muncie car.
Obviously, would be glad to purchase one or two.

Well, guess for now I will settle for some repops.  Have a link to the classic muscle web site?

Thanks.

My guy said he didn't have any, but was checking for some at a swap meet.  I will let you know what he finds.  Nothing happens quickly it seems when you need a part like that.
