speedometer problems

Post by mlascell » Sun Nov 05, 2017 5:34 pm

I bought a new M series cable and it spins without speedometer when connected to gear. Speedometer works when I tried it with a drill; connect them both and the speedo does not work. Are there any tricks out there???

If you are trying to turn the cable assy , perhaps the blade end of the shaft is not pushed far enough into the housing for the square drive end to engage the speedometer.
