[Healeys] angle drives

I think sometimes the cable may strip out if you've put in the little cable
in the angle backwards.

These flexi cables are wound a specific direction and if the manufacturer
has put it in backwards, the angle drive might sheer the cable with little
force.  Something to check before assembling the cable, it should wind in
the same direction as the main cable.  I bet that's why so many people have
had busted mini cables between the drive and the gearbox, because the cable
was upsidown.
