What is the best route to run the speedometer cable from speedometer to the transmission on a 78 El Camino?

I’d say anywhere away from the exhaust on the drivers side

maybe even put some heat shield around it when it does get near the exhaust

Is it better to run the cable down the frame on the driver's side, then go straight to the transmission or is there a better way?

Probably down the frame and over the crossmember? I’m not to familiar with 5th gen anatomy

Thank you Josh. I'll get it up on the ramps and give it a try.

Since it didn't work the other day, when I disconnect it, I know it's not one line. Is there ways to disconnect it and manually make it run the speedometer so I can tell if the cable is broken?
