[DML] Re: Speedo Cable Support

That cable support was added to reduce the strain of the cable on the
angle drive. There were also varying lengths of lower speedometer
cable, some short and some long. If the cable is too short it will be
stretched when turning the wheel and going over bumps. Too long and it
kinks. Especially without the support bracket. The angle drive was
also neglected when it came to lubrication. In fact the factory did a
service bulletin to make sure it got lubricated. After 25 years the
upper and lower cables should also be lubricated. If the needle
bounces at low speeds it is a sign that the speedometer system needs
attention. If the "coat hanger" is dangling you can remove the parts
and have it welded back together.
