Figure 10: The disassembled parts of an "early" main odometer. The order of parts is from left to right, and top to bottom. The brass keyed washers rest on top of each odometer wheel. These drag on the wheels and allow each to index when the wheel to the left releases the finger underneath.

Figure 11: An :early" trip odometer incorporating wheels indentical to the main odometer. The trip odometer is mounted on its own sub-frame. The metal fingers are shown holding the wheels. It is clear how each wheel can release the finger restraining the wheel to the left.

Figure 12: This is from a TR6 (New Stye), viewed from the rear with the case removed.

You can see the input shaft in the center, as well as the gray plastic gear which is driven off the worm. Also visible here are the magnet wheel and drag cup (silver). These will be shown in greater detail in subsequent photographs.
