    OK - got new core. Ran it threw the tube and it turned fine, no obstructions. Installed it - twisted off again. Took gauge end of core and stuck it in the back of the speedo - wont turn. Can that gauge seize up enough to twist off the core?

    I assume taking it out will be a huge pain in the but plus the prospect of finding one. Ugh.

      Absolutely.

      Remove the gage. There is a small (1/8 in) hole on top where the cable screw on end is. clean the dust out of it with a Q tip and drop one drop of 3 in 1 oil or sewing machine oil in there. THEN use a square wooden match to turn the core of the gage. If it won't turn, find another. There certainly should be some around somewhere.

      Remember to lubricate the new one.

        Is there a secret or easy way to remove that guage?
