    My NP205 is leaking where the speedo cable screws into it. I replaced the cable and it seeps through the threads on the cable and comes out. It seems like it is coming from the center of the speedo sender. Any ideas?

    Yep,

    My guess is that the "sleeve" is leaking. That's part "B" in the diagram shown above.

    Click my link to find the Photo Album about stopping leaks on NP203/NP205....that has the part # of the thing you need. It around $20 IIRC.

    You got it! I took one off of my old 203, that slowed the leak down a lot. I will eventually get around to putting a new one in there. Thanks for the help!
