you know this may not be the answer exactly, the speedo itself may need a bromo.

just pullin your strings? tricky business this...alas the government wants to know if you've been in there tampering...with any luck the new cable will go spiffy-fresh and all will be circuses and peanuts and dancing bears for us to enjoy.
