"wobbly speedo's"

Image: 

there have been a few posting queries about speedos that 'play up'. this photo is of a speedo that jumps around at low speeds and i have fixed it by making some small adjustments to counteract wear that has occured over the years. I will try to explain the best i can. In basic terms, the speedo cable drives part 'B' which you can see spins around part 'C'(connected to the needle), there is also a magnet that is connected to 'B' that sits inside part 'C', and is lined up with the metal prongs, as it spins part 'B' pulls part 'C' (which is sprung loaded to return to zero) with it giving you a speed reading--- the speedo cable is not really connected to the needle, it kinda works like a tourque convertor in an auto, IE: one drives the other. Now what happens is that everything rides on the thin shafts 'A' and after 30 odd years , it wears out and causes the mechanisms to rub against each other giving the 'grabbing effect' of the needle jumping up and down, you can ever so slightly and very carefully bend the prongs out to stop them rubbing on the hub (which i have done with this one)-- but not too much as this will effect the reading of the speedo, and that should solve the problem for another extended period of years. sometimes you can get away with packing out the speedo cable with a washer to lift the magnet off the hub, but this doesn't always work.I hope this may help someone, cheers, john
