I have a speedometer that ...

do i have a piece missing? Speedo drive - resolved?

Hi. Hopefully all resolved. Visit to GW. Thanks Matt. The auto cable comes with end piece attached for the gearbox. Swap the drive piece and a new O ring. Also the gearbox clamp is a closed type put on the cable when manufactured. Who knew? Must have been the wrong one attached previously. Probably ...

do i have a piece missing? Speedo drive

Thanks for that info. Makes some sense to aid removal. But I thought the Speedo cable was correctly fitted at the head. This only leaves me just over 1/4 inch to go into the drive gear hole. Nowhere near enough to reach inside the gearbox drive unit. Perhaps I have it wrong at the head. Do you happe...

do i have a piece missing? Speedo drive

Thanks for persevering with me Jim. Ok, at least I know what I need. If you have one to photograph removed I could make one up if I can’t buy one. Maybe someone else on here has one. If I can get a picture of what I need then I could do a wanted ad if the usual suppliers don’t have anything. At leas...

do i have a piece missing? Speedo drive

Hi Jim, That is my guess not a fact. I don’t think I am being clear really in my issue. Yes the cable outer will fasten to that drive at the gearbox. But! The cable just pokes into the hole in the drive in the gearbox. The cable inner protrudes only 1/4 inch or so down the hole in the drive. It does...
