[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive

On one car I worked on that used to eat angle drives I found that
inside the speedometer head one of the plastic posts had broken loose.
It still had a metal clip attached. It had gotten caught up in the
speedometer works because of the magnet and jammed the speedometer
causing the cable to have to work harder prematurely wearing out the
angle drives and cables. If you have this recurring problem with the
speedometer you should look inside the speedometer head. Just getting
another angle drive is not going to fix it for good. Also make sure
you have the lower cable support bracket and check the hole in the
middle of the plastic drive cover. It MUST be square. Sometimes they
get rounded out. You can also wrap the disc edge with electrical tape
so it can't slip between the rim and the spindle. The angle drive MUST
be lubricated. Once a year when you lube the front end you have to
lube the angle drive too.
