well today was another warm day. And i worked on the tiger again. Since the 
cable i was using before didnt work at all, i inspected the other used one 
and put it in. But before i put it in, i jacked the rear wheels off and 
started the car. And looked to see if the gear inside the tranny was 
spinning. And yes it was. So i put the cable in and hooked it all up. Made 
sure it was in there good. One thing i did notice, this cable seats in 
farther than the other new one.

Then we went for a drive. Ahh well first 5 minutes the speedo didnt work. So 
i thought ahh well i have no idea what it is. Then after the about 10 
minutes the speedo starts to jump. I was very surprised. We were driving 
around for about an hour and a half, and by the time we were done it was 
working better, but stil very very jumpy. on the interstate we were doin 
3000rpm. and the needle would go from 50-20-50-20 and around there. You get 
the idea.

So i was going to try and put in a 16 tooth. Because right now our stock 15 
is missing one tooth. And i called around to the parts stores like NAPA and 
Advanced auto, and they didnt have anything. Not even a listing for it. NApa 
dosnt even deal in manual trannys.

So does SS have a 16 tooth. I also need a lower radiator hose. It leaks 
sometimes and then sometimes not.

thanks in advanced!! :-)
