I just had my Stewart Speedometer and cable rebuilt. I am re-installing it on my 1914 Touring and would like the cable to be routed correctly. I notice in the Lang's catalog they offer a rubber grommet that goes in a hole in the right-side splash apron to protect the speedometer cable where it passes through. My splash apron has no hole. When I bought the car the cable was just shoved up inside the frame rail underneath the firewall. I would like to route the cable correctly and would appreciate any information on how to do it. If I need to drill a hole in the splash apron, where do I do it? Thank you.
I haved a photo of an original 1910 with the hole / grommet that you describe if you like i can email it to you. Let me know and drop me a line at email@example.com

Don, The hole is right behind the firewall and centered on the "flat" portion of the apron. The hole is 1" in diameter and used a rubber washer to keep the cable from rubbing on the apron. I have the rubber washers, but you can get them at any parts supply house. Call me and I'll give you more details. Russ Furstnow
I have an orignal Jones Speedometer grommet. It is a hard as a rock, but who cares?
