Correct angle of speedo drive

PostPost by: William2 » Fri Mar 21, 2014 5:38 pm

I have just replaced the right angle speedo drive and wondered if anyone could confirm that I've got the angle correct. Not quite sure how the cable route goes. Photo attached.

Probably depends on the length of the cable. I bought an aftermarket one from one of the big suppliers and quite long. My angle drive is positioned at roughly 10 o'clock.
