    i resently replaced the transmition in my truck, and when i was hooking it all back up i didn`t get the speedo cable in the holder on frame rail correctly. it then fell out onto my exshaust pipe and melted, but not in two. it stoped turning but was stil conenected on both ends. could something be stripped on one end or is there something that would give. I hope i don`t have to replace the plastic gear in the trans or the spedometer. what do you think?<p><br>frahmie

    Your going to have to replace the cable. and check the speedo gear, they are easy to change. remove the gear and check to see if its stripped. there made of plasic, they are pretty cheap.
