[DML] Re: speedo cable lube

By "gear lube" are you refering to 90 weight gear oil? If so what are the reasons
you say not to lubricate with this, because a "full-service DeLorean vendor"
advised me to use 90 weight gear oil to lubricate the speedometer cables. I can't
imagine they would steer me wrong.

To lube the cables you remove the inner cable and lay it out on some
newspaper. It should lay out in a smooth circle with no straight
sections or kinks. If it is OK reinsert lubricating it as you go with
the black graphite speedometer cable lubricant. Do not use white
grease or gear lube. When you go to the auto supply they will have it
there in a little bottle.
 For the angle drive you remove the cable and spin the angle drive to
expose the smalll screw in the side. It is easier if you remove the
front left tire. Then with a small hand grease gun you squirt in some
heavy oil or grease.
 The Lambda counter does not need to be lubricated.
