it's quite simple geezer. attach to the back of the speedo first, take the smoothest sweeping route posible. attch the gearbox one last again taking the smoothest route with sweeping curves. tight bends will result in a snapped cable (like i had).

also take your time threading the gearbox connector as you don't want crossthread the nylon.

no ramps. the cable passes through the bulkhead so yes it comes out that way. also the clock need to be out of the dash to clip it on.
