[DML] Re: WANTED: Angle Drive

That short, square, piece of speedo cable will break because the angle
drive jams up. It shouldn't matter which way it is wound until the
angle drive puts so much of a load on it that it unwinds. Funny that
it will unwind before damaging the plastic drive cap. In any case if
the square cable does unwind the fault is NOT with that piece of cable
but the angle drive or the lower speedometer cable (or maybe a piece
loose in the speedometer head?). Having the RPM-MPH conversion chart
is a good idea. I leave mine just laying on the binnicle so it is
handy if I need it.
