The squealing and erratic movement is lack of oil. Pull the speedo and follow the instructions, I think it's a sticky and I think dan chuck also has a procedure for pulling the little brass cap and doing a little service work. Costs a little time and some light oil. Worth a try.

Well after disassembling the speedo I found the rod that holds the needle had separated from the brass cup. To small to try and resolder so I put a spot of super glue on it. I'll try it out tomarrow.

I had the same issue. I did just as Dragsix suggests and mine is like new again.
X4 and it only took about 15 minutes... could hardly turn it prior, but once I cleaned it with penetration oil as instructed, lubed and reinstalled the wick, it spins easily and is quiet and smooth.

Make sure that the glue is strong enough, should do the same job as solder :anim_25:
