Was afraid of cracking pot metal housing so didn't even attempt. Unfortunately that's only way to replace spindle cable. I worked with remaining cable in place instead. Have only seen gears through lubrication hole. Appear to be worm and cog, not 45 degree angle. Can try www.mcmaster.com or www.grainger.com. Perhaps search for online hobby suppliers (source of 1/8" hollow square tube used in repair of my AD). Am all for original engineering. Is often essential when dealing with old cars.
