Speed/Odo problems.

;My speedometer works fine, but the ododmeter, on '84 4ks, is intermittent, 
;I thought these were on the same cable???  When I asked
;another mechanically inclined individual with an Audi (oblig.)
;he mentioned a portion of the cable that is only connected via
;some friction connection (ie two disc's of some sort)

;Does my ododmeter have a clutch or a dynaflow? *grin*  Any
;ideas folks?

Our family has owned 3 Audi's.  I've owned 2 of them, and on both, the odo 
quit even though the speedo continued to work ok.  It seems to do it when 
there are lots of 9's, and it has to roll over lots of digits.  On the last 
one, there was a gear that turned a shaft via a "friction" fit, which 
evidently didn't have enough "friction" to turn all the digits.  Mine is 
dead now, so I'll have 89999 miles forever!
