Re: [DML] Re: Angle Driveless Speedometer

I think it is more a matter of what we have come to expect.

In all of the cars I have owned, I have never needed to do "proper maintenance" to the speedometer system.  My 1966 Mustang, which I have owned since 1987, has never had any speedometer problems (great, now that I said it I will!!!), and I have never even considered doing any "maintenance" to it.

The Taurus at one point was making some noise, and I shot some lubricant in to the cable.  all fixed quiet now.

The reality is, the added component of the angle drive (and associated parts) in the DeLorean makes is less reliable than most other cars (what we have come to expect).

One of my spedo's quit working on the way home from the LBI parade, and I have not yet checked to see why.  However, I have always been good about keeping the angle drive and cables lubricated.
