Hi guys, I’m replacing my speedo with a Smiths Magnolia gauge and have noticed the speedo cable in the car doesn’t fit the new gauge. Do I need to change this cable for a different type?

Hard to tell from the photo what you have. Offset instruments use a push on cable and center clock is screw on.

It's a screw on, but the threaded socket on the back of the gauge is much thinner that the push on cable I have fitted. I think I've found one that's suitable but being only 26" long is surely too short. I'd have thought these Smiths speedos would be very popular in Mini's, so thought the cable required would be easy to find, but I can't seem to find it.

If it's the fitting shown on this link, Minispares sell a 30", 36" and 39" version:
