Re: [DML] Re: Speedometer bouncing

Just wanted to write a note of thanks to everyone for your responses.
To sum up real quick:

1. Angle drive should be lubricated. I did this last weekend and it
seemed to help a bit, but not much.

2. Lube the cables with a speedometer lube (A couple of people
recommended a graphite lube from Napa made for speedometer cables).
Start with the lower, move on to the upper if it doesn't help (or just
do both, can't hurt).

3. Check the drive disc to ensure it's not slipping. Make sure the
square hole is not rounded out and the cable goes in far enough to be

4. Lastly, replacing the OEM cable with a slightly shorter cable from
DMCH is a good idea.

I'll start working down these points until it is solved. I'm thinking
a good cable inspection and lube, and potential replacement of the
lower cable, should do the trick.

Thanks again,
