Question
How do you install speed cable in the shift control MLG-271TQ one?

Answer
I can't find any reference to the shifter model you've provided.
However, like most bicycle shifter mechanisms, it is best to start by setting the shifter to its most "relaxed" position: on most bikes, this will be the highest numerical gear position.
Next, disconnect the cable from its derailer, and push the inner wire back through all its relative cable housing(s) and finally through the shifter body itself (It may take some force to dislodge the cable's bead from its socket in the shifter mechanism).
Thread the new cable back through the shifter and housing section(s) and reattach to the derailer.

Expertise

I can answer most inquiries with respect to bicycle assembly, repair, tuning and maintenance. I am less than inclined to speak on such questions as "What kind of bike should I buy?", &/or "What is this bike worth?", etc. Any answers to these types of questions may correlate poorly to an acceptable "fact/sarcasm" ratio.

Experience

7 seasons of "Professional" bicycle service/repair, etc. 4 seasons as Instructor, Professional Bicycle Mechanic training college. n-1 seasons of riding, cracking, crushing, mutilating and breaking bikes of any & all varieties, and thus requiring intense and at-hand skills development, etc.
