Speedo drive unit incompatible?

Have a '70 Raleigh Sports. Have this CPC speedometer that is not fitting on the wheel. Does this not work on this bike
or am I missing something?

Are you kidding me? The centre hole on the drive unit has to fit onto the hub axle inside the fork. Then, the tabs engage the spokes to turn the so far not shown cable. If you don't have the cable, this will never work

HA! No, I know this...pic is just for showing what I have...and I have the cable. When I remove the wheel and fit the unit on the hub
it does not fit...forks too tight, can not pull them apart to accommodate the drive unit.


DONE! NO SPEEDO.
