I seem to have snapped the quill in my angle drive for the speedo.  The drive itself seems fine, but from what I can tell the quill snapped in two.

 

I’m having trouble bringing myself to pay $10.00 for one, plus shipping from the UK.

Realize it’s a long shot, but anyone have a spare?

Ouch, you don't want loose pieces of metal floating around in the transmission oil. It is bound to end up in the gears or synchromesh!

Anker - The speedo drive fitting on the trans isn’t open to the inside, so the other half isn’t in the trans.  The drive kept spinning, so I think it eventually just worked it’s way out.

This is for a Type 9.I bought 2 from a speedo shop in the States. But I’m not sure if there the same as yours. Can’t find the address yet. If you want this one , no problem.

Steve - thanks, but two quills are in transit from the UK as I type.  Just one more slightly silly purchase to add to the list. :)

Seems to come with the territory.


Interestingly, the shipping from the UK was the same as what Pierce Manifold charged to ship some gaskets for my Webers from CA.
