[DML] angle drive

In the last year I have had two angle drives fail. The small cable that 
goes thru the wheel is twisting off, the angle drive itself (the gears) 
are still good. I have taken an angle drive apart to see what makes it 
tick, I have posted pictures on the photo section and named it angle 
drive ( wow how did I think of that). If you have never seen the inside 
of the angle drive take a look. I was hoping to find a way to replace 
the small cable instead of the whole drive unit, but I do not see a way 
to do so. I did however find the problem with my angle drive, the 
grease was dried and hard and you can see discoloration on the gear 
which mean too hot, I failed to lube the angle drive and so I ended up 
replacing it. I talked to John Hervey and he says to use silcone grease 
it will withstand heat and will not dry out, so from now on I will lube 
my angle drive after a few hundred miles and use the grease John said 
to use.  Maybe i have replaced my last angle drive, however on the plus 
side I am getting good at it,
