How do you remove speedometer cable from F750?

It won't be a speedometer cable like the one you're probably thinking of. On the top of the transmission output shaft, there'll be a speed sensor. Connected to this speed sensor will be wires connected by a quick connect coupler. Unplug that, and you can remove the speed sensor with a ratchet and socket. Rather than a cable which goes directly to the speedometer, the F750 will have a speed sensor which sends a signal to the engine ECM, then the ECM sends a signal to the speedometer.
