[DML] Re: Speedometer bouncing

The bouncing is usually caused by the OEM lower cable that is too long 
(a subsequent change used a shorter cable - there was a bulletin on 
this I believe). The longer cable has too much bend in it and allows 
the cable to have accelerating rotations in it. Poor lubrication will 
usually amplify the acceleration and the bouncing. If it is lubricated 
with a proper, thin, non hardening lubricant it will usually minimize 
after some "settling in". Unfortunately, the longer lower cable also 
allowed moisture to collect in a trap effect in the cable behind the 
front wheel before it entered the car (there is usually some extra 
rubber piece over the cable too that help this) thus causing seizure 
of the cable in the housing and often destroying the angle drive when 
it seizes. The longer cable can cause various problems.

Order the shorter cable from DMCH (the last time I tried they were 
out) or, get the Teflon coated cable from DPNW. DPNW's is a longer 
cable and initially had some of the bounce but after running a while 
is virtually all gone.
