Re: [DML] Re: Speedometer Troubles

I've had the same trouble for years.  Tried all the solutions with no 
luck.  Frustrating!

Once I put the drill to the speedo cable where it attaches to the angle 
drive.  The speedo was as smooth as could be.  My conclusion is that it 
is angle drive related.  I've tried a couple angle drives and have given 
up for a while.

Some day I'm going to do the drill thing when attached to the angle 
drive cable.
