Speedometer Cable O-Ring Size?


Jeff G 78

Recommended Posts

My speedometer cable o-ring must have finally failed after 44 years and my car is leaking trans fluid.  Does anybody know the actual diameter and cross section of the o-ring?  I could buy one from Z Car Depot, but I'd rather not pay a bunch of shipping and wait weeks for a $3 part if I can find the same o-ring at the local hardware store.  Of course I gave away four transmissions before I moved to AZ last year and they all had the mounts and o-rings attached.  Story of my life.  🙂

yes.. but they had all also old rings in it i bet.. haha so no worry's..  i bought a universal box with LOTS of rings once for a few bucks and there is always a ring in there that fits..  Take out the old one and you know what you need..

Oh and btw... a transmission is around 1500 euro's overhere... oeps sorry 🙈

Good answer….Get a box of assorted sizes. You’ll have all the O rings you’ll ever need.

Just type in O Ring Kit on Amazon…770 pieces for $11.00. 👍

O-ring size is 24x2.5mm (ID x Cross section). NBR or Viton material.

O-

Thanks!  That's exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't look like the local hardware store or HD/Lowe's have the right one. Amazon has it in a 50 pack in the right material or in some of the big variety kits, but I'll end up spending $20. I guess I'll just order through zcardepot.
