You have to disconnect the cable and push it out the front. The wires in the rear should be long enough to pull off when its out. There is only a rubber ring gasket that holds it in

I've got a rebuilt KPH speedo waiting to go into my Super. How do you get the old one out? Do you have to disconnect the speedo cable and wires before you pull it out?

Thanks Mark. Can you get your hands up in behind the dash to disconnect the speedo cable?

On my 73 super, when I first took the speedo out thats what I did. Yes you can get your hand up there to remove the speedo cable. But after putting it in and out a few times to get it just right, I found that I could push it out from behind and then disconnect the speedo cable from the front. But I do have some long fingers. Cheers Hotdam.

He Hotdam, If you still have the pics of the speedo can you send them back to me ? I lost a bunch of pics when our pc crashed and those were some of them.
