I have good used right-angled drives if you need one.
My curiosity drove me to open one up a while back.
There is plug that has a wide slot in it. It is
prevented from turning by a slight pressing at either
end of the slot. The easiest method is a Dremel tool
to slightly "reverse" the pressing. The plug can be
unscrewed and you can gain access to one of the gears.
I couldn't figure out how to complete an
"undestructive" removal of the second plug for the
other gear. I used a chisel and reclosed the "lock"
I have about 3 speedo internel sets without the case.
They are good used, as well. (What mileage did you
Anything you need, ask, and I'll look downstairs.
