1927 Buick Master Six questions

I have a 1927 Buick Master Six.  I have been slowly making improvements, but parts are hard to come by.

 

I had this screeching/grinding noise coming from the firewall area and I thought maybe the driveline was rubbing on some metal.  It didn't always make the noise however.  One day there was a pop and the noise went away.  Now I noticed the speedometer doesn't work and am sure the cable broke.  Can someone tell me if you can have them made somewhere???

 

I have several other issues, so if there is a Buick buff who would like to talk about it, I'd love to...talk

Thanks,

I have done this a few times, new cable is readily available from instrument repairers.   Attaching the ends is simple, the ones I repaired were all originally soft soldered on so  a large soldering iron or propone burner will do the job.  One of the easiest repairs you will make but you need to route that cable so that it does not have sharp bends to avoid a repeat failure.
