Oh yes.  Now I know why they moved the counter on to the inst cluster
it's hard to reset :-)

Opened old one, which would jam when I pressed the engine side doohickey
in a bit, ooh.  nice rust, nice crud. and nice and wet... today and
Sunday both had good frosts and I didn't drive during the day to shake
things loose...

I think I'll swap in that other spare cable, with the spare OXS counter,
and order a later style, full length cable tomorrow.  (BTW, the old
cables are shown but not listed in family pix anyway.)

Thanks Dan, at least I knew right where to look!
