Someone may have replaced the cable with one which was too short. Each end is supposed to extend about 1/16 inch beyond end of nipples for casing. If yours is "down in there" it is too short. Go to local speedo shop and have them cut you a longer one by appropriate amount. Doesn't take long to install once lubed, but I tend to cut wrists when coupling it up behind the instrument panel.
