Re: Bouncing Speedo, replaced cable, still bouncing
Auto store recommended white litheum grease.
I tried testing my spare instrument cluster speedo by grabbing the outer collar (which rotates) with my drill (going counter clockwise); drill would not tighten; kept sliding off the collar.
So, I took a plack plastic tie, cut three 1" pieces, wormed them tightly into the cable orifice on the back of the speedometer, tightened the other end in my drill, and it worked just fine.
Spare speedo tested smooth.
With the speed of my drill, the speedometer peaked at about 60 mph, but it was smooth all the way up.
Next, I need to get the energy to pull the front bucket seat, squeeze under the dash, pull out the cluster, test the speedo, and lubricate the cable as required.
