Could anyone give me the correct length of the inner speedo cable for a '42 Knuckle speedo.

Not sure if they are the same diameter as a Panhead, but I just went through this with a 58 and bought one that wouldn't work. I bought universal cut your own length kit from a local Indy dealer. It worked great.

The inner should be about one inch longer than the outer so right at 36-3/4 overall.

49-1/2 sounds like a 45 inner.
