Went to look at some T stuff that a guy had behind his garage. Most of it was pretty toasted and working it's way into the ground. As I was leaving my foot caught a cable ... As I pulled it from the ground I discovered it was a Stewart speedo cable with the bracket and swivel. Something I'd been looking for!

I brought it home and started to remove the crusted dirt and found the swivel in perfect condition ... a except for the part of the case that has the drive connection. I had broken the casting where the pin holds the drive fitting when at yanked it out of the ground ... crap!

Is there any adhesive that will work on this! It's a fresh clean break.

It's pot metal I wouldn't trust glue to hold it. Show us a picture of the broken part and maybe someone has a spare they would make available for you.

Could you repair it? I saw this guy repair a door handle a year or so back. It did not look difficult.
