26/04/2005 13:41:34   Tom.K   I recently put a replacement gearbox in my saab. Everything is working fine accept, l have no speedo. The speed cable worked before l swopped the box. How tight should it be at the box? is hand tight enough? or is it something internal?

Any pointers would be great, and preferably ones that don't require to having the engine out again!

Try jacking up the front of the car and running it in gear to see if you can see the speedo drive turning. Be very careful that the car is secure and that you dont get your clothing caught in anything rotating. If the drive is turning then it must be the cable.
