Which hole for speedo cable on a late 260Z?

Recommended Posts

In the photo where the firewall meets the inner guard are three holes.

The big one is for electrical.

Which of the other two is for the speedo cable?

I feel it is the lower one.

I should have taken a photo when dismantling but I didn't.

Car is a late 260Z-not sure what year as a rivet was put through the number after 197

Thanks.

Not sure if it changed, but on my 1974 260z it is the lower one.

The top one looks to be for the bonnet release cable.

Hello AndBir. Thanks for that.

That is what I was thinking.

It will teach me a lesson to take more photos when stripping down.

I have spent hours looking at photos on the internet trying to see how it should be.

I have printed out a photo so will mark it so that when the car is finally painted I will know what to do.

Thanks again.

Yep, not an area that is normally seen, hidden below the washer bottle.

Hard to see clearly on my photo:

Thank you very much for taking the trouble for the photo.

Even though it is a little dark down in there you can see it is above the electrical wires.

Ditto on my 74 260, the cables have never been removed from the car.
