[TR] TR6 speedometer drive removal

Hi Mark,
	I had the same problem.  I’ve got an A type transmission built from into Austin-Healy housing.  My overdrive worked well for several years and then quit in the same manner.  On my overdrive the angle drive is held in by a set screw that engages, if memory serves, a groove on the angle drive housing. By pushing the angle drive into the housing past the groove and then tighting down the set screw the cable once again connected to the drive in the transmission and has worked well that way for several years.
	Take care.

After having the speedometer needle jumping about quite a bit for a while, it finally just dropped to no movement. I checked the cable interior and then the angle-drive. Other than a sticky point when threading the inner cable, both cable and angle drive seem OK. However, when all are fitted to the transmission, the cable interior can spin freely, so it seems that the drive gear in the transmission must be done.
