[DML] Re: Grady's, HRC Angle drive

I wonder just how much "hardness" plays a role in the longevity of the
gearset. In many instances of gearsets one gear is purposly made
softer than another so that you only replace 1 gear instead of 2. In
any case there are many origional angle drives out there still
operating with plastic gears. My theory is that the angle drive fails
because the speedometer gets jammed up with parts that break loose
inside and the metal clips get attracted into the magnet and jam up
the works. Before over-engineering the angle drive it is better to
find the ultimate cause of the failures and correct it. In any case we
do need a source for angle drives that fail but the "best" solution
would be to replace the angle drive with some type of rotary encoder
feeding an electronic drive for the speedometer (or a completely
electronic speedometer). On the subject of the difficulty in
lubricating the angle drive, I ask, how many owners lubricate theirs
and how often?
