Two things to add...

#1 - by adding [img.] at the beginning and [/img.] (ignore the periods, had to put them so you could see the code) at the end of your picture links, the picture will show in your post. Kinda nice to be able to make reference to your pics while reading the post .

#2 - the reason behind disconnecting the speedo cable to twofold. It creates more slack, allowing the cluster to come out further for disconnecting the cable and wire connections. Secondly, if you over stress or stretch the cable, the speedo needle may begin jumping at low speeds or may not work at all.
