Is it possible to swap out tach cable top nuts?

I'm talking about the one that threads onto the instrument itself.
Right now I'm working up a set of 3.5 gallon fatbobs to use on my '74 ironhead for summer road trips to get better mileage & they came with the FXS/Sturgis tach & speedo dash.
Both instruments are cable-driven.
I'd like to convert my existing 12mm mini-gauge cables to work with the dash's gauges --- cables ain't cheap & I'd rather use what I've already got.
I'm pretty sure I can do it with the speedo cable, which would require a 5/8"-NPT replacement nut (if I'm not mistaken), but I'm unsure if the tach cable nut can be slipped off/removed & swapped out.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Find a shop with the CCI cable making kit. it has all the parts to make it work, new end needs to be crimped on though.....

You need to get a new flare, the crimping tool is "Heavy Duty" we have the kit here at the shop, not your normal crimpers :eek:

Now pics or it didnt happen.....:rolleyes:
