An over length inner cable can be the problem, but I have encountered some
cases where the speedo odometer section would tighten up after a few miles
of operation due to lack of lubrication. Amazingly even low speed bearings
can seize!! 
I would recommend running the instrument for several miles using a drill
running anticlockwise as the drive. You may well find that it gets quite
stiff to turn after a few minutes.

I've gone through 3 angle drive in 50 miles. The speedo turns freely.  
I pulled the cable and noticed the end at the speedo was difficult to  
pull out and when I did pull it, the end seemed to be "ragged.".  I've  
put oil on the ends to help with drag but...  I have not over  
tightened the ends and in fact tried to make them snug but not too  

Does anyone have suggestions?
