Default 74 Nova SS - Speedometer issue

Hi folks, The speedometer in my dash is acting up, I put a new cable in the spring, but I still have an issue.
It reads perfect from )mph to 50 mph, but it won't go beyond the 50 mark, it sticks there.
When I slow down to an actual speed of less than 50, the speedometer works fine and drops to my actual speed.
I am hoping that some of you have experianced this problem and could lead me in the right direction as to what to do.

Many Thanks

Default Re: &$ Nova SS - Speedometer issue

it's possible the casing is dirty. was it cleaned on the inside prior to the new cable being installed ???

try removing the cable assembly, remove the cable and spray some brake clean inside the casing. then spray the cable with some dry graphite spray, also inside the casing, then reassemble.

wd40 isn't recommended as a lube as it'll attract and hold dirt & grime... use the graphite spray

hope i helped
