Been trying to locate a cable and housing for my 1927 Ford. Have a 160 Stewart. Please don't give me the phone number of the "speedometer guy" he has no answering machine, and does not answer.
What does it look like, length etc., I might have one in my storage
If Russ isn't at the phone, maybe he checks his e-mail from time to time?

I'm sure Russ isn't avoiding your calls on purpose. He's a one man shop. Leave your number here and I'm sure he will reach out to you.
Why are cables hard to find? Because they are rare. Speedometers were aftermarket accessory, and only few owners bought them.
That said, you can hunt at swaps, or adv. but you have to know what to look for. And Russ will answer you if patient. He's a working guy, and it's a hobby for most all of us too.
Maybe these will help so you can be specific in you quest.
There are 2 types of cables for the 160 I believe depending on which speedometer head you have. One screws on and the other is held on with a clip and a screw. I believe the screw on type is being reproduced but the other style is no and is very hard to find.
I'm not sure if I'm your "speedometer guy", but I have an answering machine and I have not gotten a message from you. The cable for your speedometer can be of two distinct types depending on your speedometer drive. If you have the spiral drive, there is one type of cable and if you have a swivel drive the cable takes the "chain link" style. I'm happy to talk with you about your needs. Ph: (928) 526-1343.
