I have to wonder why someone would cut a speedo cable. Maybe more to it than just replacing the cable once you get in there.

in the graphic, it shows a hub that goes on the right side of the drive axle (part 12), for a speedo insert there is one with a place for the cable to either attach or thread onto, or go through that part. the hub is on the right side from a sitting position usually, accessible from under the hood - the hub holds the end of the drive axle and bearing. the cable attaches to the end of the drive axle with a little insert.

Found it!

Not sure what year this Alpine is - But shows Speedo Drive on end of transmission shaft that the brake is on.

Might explain why your cable looks like it was rubbing on something
That picture is an Alpine 2 and in the shop manual it does show the speedo drive in that spot.

looks like it's narrowed down to a couple possible locations. have to admit - if it is on the transmission there - that looks like it would be easier than the ones on the end of the drive shaft.

Ok - Found some evidence it may actually be mounted outside the frame

Found these pictures of a "Doghouse" cover where the normal driveshaft outer bearing cover is. Could be to protect the angle drive

Sure looks like it could be easily damaged in the woods sticking out like that.

Yes,That is exactly what that is for. In my parts book it's call a right angle drive protector.
