eh speedo

can anybody help me with this problem? i have just installed my third speedo in my eh and i have a continuing problem with the needle bouncing. the speedo works fine for the first hour of driving then the needle starts to jump. it seems to be worse at lower speeds and more steady at higher speeds. would this be a problem with the speedo cable or the speedo itself? any help would be appreciated. cheers daniel

im guessing its the speedo gear in the box, have you looked at both gears to see if there worn?
you can try taking out the cable and cleaning it, then dip it in oil and wipe of the excess, but id first check the gears

Ist check

Remove your cable from the outer and check that the inner cable is straight at the end going into the speedo head and the driven gear. You can straighten them easily by bending between your fingers grease and return to the outer.Button it up and give it a whirl.

2nd check

If the seal on the bottom of the driven gear is leaking out will transfer oil up the cable and get into the speedo head causing the bounce. Not good for the speedo!
