Just a heads up for the guys (and girls) owning an older car that uses one of the original reverse rotation speedometers with the right-angle adapter and is cable driven . . . these need to be lubed along with your normal preventive maintenance routine.

I was out last weekend, going to my Saturday morning Cars & Coffee gathering and noticed that my cable driven speedo pointer was jumping around a bit. Truefully, I hadn't thought about the right-angle adapter or the cable in it's jacket for a few years - the "twitching" was the tell-tale sign that I hadn't serviced it in a while.

Pulled the dash and disconnected the speedo drive, lubed the cable, the cable jacket and the adapter with a quality grease and all is good.

Just a heads up
