    The bell sounds are the speedo drum rubbing on the magnet, which will also cause the needle to bounce and jump. The cable spins the magnet inside the drum (and they can't touch) and the drum is...

    Was the cable lubed well and did it spin freely? There is no adjustment. Did it work ok before you changed the cable? Is the housing back in the same position?
