My take is that not too many mechanical odometers were design to run for 300,000 miles to start with. I played with mine on 85 model and from my recollection that was some kind of clutch, that suppose to engage but it didn't. All gears were good, but the thing would not turn. Even I am pretty good in precision mechanics, I gave up and got another odometer from junk yard.
