Lubricating Speedo Cable
I have recently lubricated the speedo cables on our 2 T100's and I thought it may be interesting to tell you how I did it.
It is quite an easy excercise but if you have ever done it you will know the one small problem is getting the inner cable back into the outer cable, because it tends to catch the ferrel on top of the cable where it enters the speedometer. This is how I did it.
You do not need to remove the outer cable or even undo it from the speedometer, all you need to do is undo it from the gear box on the front wheel and give it a sharp tug and it will come out, I greased it with a mixture of mollyslip grease and engine oil mixed 50/50. The trick is when you thread it back into the outer cable, push it up untill it meets the obstruction where the cable bends to go into the speedo, you will find you have a further 2" of cable to go, connect a drill to the cable and give it about half a second burst and you will find the cable goes right in no problem, when you connect the cable back onto the gear box don't overtighten the phillips screw or you may break the plastic fitting, the whole excercise takes about fifteen minutes.
