Speedometer Jumping
« on: February 20, 2016, 10:50:10 PM »
I have replaced the Driven Gear that had the end of the shaft melted off by the Cable, replaced the Cable, and now the Head, which started making noise after I replaced the Driven Gear and Cable.

The new Speedometer Head is quiet, but below 20 MPH, it has the jitters, and over 20 MPH, I'm not even sure if it's reading right. Could the new Cable, which did not match the old Cable length be at fault?

Spray some white lithium grease down the cables

I just replaced my cable today. The new one was a lot longer than the old but it works perfectly. I would guess the cable length is not your issue.
