The cable runs inside its housing which extends from the rear of the spedometer head, through the firewall, to the tailshaft of the transmission. Sometimes, in between these points is found a transducer-- which is a "take-off" for the cruise control. Lubrication is accomplished by disconnecting the connection at the top(spedometer or transducer) and squeezing into the sheath an amount of graphite lube designed for this purpose, then reattaching the cable/sheath assembly. Occasionally it is necessary to also detach this at the lower end and gently pull the cable itself a certain distance up through the sheath for proper distribution of the lube, after which the cable is fed back into the sheath and everything is reattached. Take note: Graphite can be difficult to remove from skin, cloth, carpet, etc. Hope it helps. jb
