Speedometer cable or odometer noise?

I'm experiencing a whining noise with my '73 450SL. Starts at about 45 mph. At first I was inclined to think it was the speedometer cable, but not sure. Noise kicks in pretty consistently at about 45, won't stop till car is almost at a dead stand still. The trip odometer doesn't work any more but will not reset to zero. Car has 117K on it. I'm pretty confident it's the cable due to vibrations felt when putting hand against face of speedometer. I figured after the holidays I'd look into the problem but hopefully someone may have had the same problem. Any answers? DP
