[DML] Re: speedo cable lube

There can be an honest difference of opinion on the type of
lubrication for speedometer cables. I have seen all kinds of stuff
used. I prefer to use "Speedometer Cable Lubricant" which is a fancy
name for graphite mixed in a very thin oil. It will not cause a lot of
drag when it is very cold and it will permeate the cable and work it's
way all up and down the cable. It is messy to use but it always worked
for me. If in doubt call a speedometer shop that services the old
style (cable driven, not electronic) speedometers and ask for their
advice. They would know, they fix them when they break! The 90W gear
oil or grease is good for the angle drive. I prefer grease, it will
not leak as fast out of the angle drive.
