The gearbox end of the speedo cable is difficult to engage sometimes; the clip that holds the cable into the back of the speedo can break through old age; the needle on the speedo can get a bit "sticky" wher e the magnetic force is not enough to push the needle around. A good tap gets mine going again.

The square end of the cable needs to be  - well, square.

If it has rounded off, it will not engage with its socket.
