so when I got to his place I had a look at the front wheel , most surprised to see that the hub had moved around, the lug on the arm had jumped out of the grove in the brake plate

The 'boss' on the link arm is steel so I would not have thought that would wear, more likely the groove in the brake plate.

that's very true john , so I took the front wheel out to check it the speedo drive had snapped about 2 inches from the wheel, cleaned it all up must admit the boss does not look damaged nor the hub, only thing I can think is the wheel was not put back properly when I had a new tyre
any one got a speedo inner cable

Looks like the boss was not located in groove when wheel replaced, lucky it did not cause an accident. Others be warned Shocked

a lesson learned there john I will check if I have a wheel fitted again , anyway a more important question for you buffs ,, are all t80 speedo cables the same length as in 83 to 89years if so I will just pop in a new inner cable

well my idea of just popping the inner cable in the old outer was a non starter when it turned out to be to short.
what a pain fitting the new cable, in the end I took the front off took the brake cable out of the stem dropped the speedo cable down the tube then the brake cable put the wheel in checked that the speedo worked and tightened everything up couldn't road test it as it was getting dark

road checked this morning everything works wont go any faster tho double checked that the wheel was fitted properly this time,
only thing I found this morning was I had forgotten to fit a split pin in the wheel spindle nut

I've taken a zillion pictures of the bike during the stripdown so hopefully it won't be an issue. The paint has arrived, "Metallic Rocco Red".

best of luck how about some photos as it goes together and some notes as what not to do and what to do should save me a lot of head scratching when I do mine
