[DML] Forgot To Mention Re: Angle Drives

Forgot to mention:

My housing with the worn bushing is egg shaped parallel to the speedo
gear. Obviously torque from gear rotation has been forcing the spindle
gear's shaft against that side of the bushing. 

Rotation in the other direction pushes the spindle gear assembly
against the bottom of the housing. The shaft can't wallow (my busing
is only oblong, not rounded out) -- it's held steady by the large
surface area of the gear face contacting the bottom of the housing.
That's why my worn housing doesn't bind when spinning backwards, even
at high speed. Our rotation bottoms out against a convex shaped piece
of metal, which only contacts the center of the gear face, allowing
the whole assembly to continue to rock over.

As always, feel free to flame away....
