I have some close up photos I can share with you later when I get home from work.

I found one photo on my work computer but I can take more when I get home. This is generally what it looks like behind the speedometer face. When you push the long black button(which is hard to see in this specific photo)...it lifts off the gears from the trip odometer and resets it.

Here is a better photo. It seems like a part that could be swapped out from another cluster because it is just a dial that feeds off the main odometer that resets itself to zero whenever the driver wishes.

I wouldn't take it apart just yet, usually it's just a combination of factory oil and years of fine dust making things a bit sticky.

Give it a blow with compressed air and then a dry lube, graphite or other and work the button as needed, should fix it right up.

Try your best not to spray or drip on the number faces, the paint is old and easily damaged/removed.

Great advice. I have two part clusters here and one is super clean such as you see in the photo. The other one is pretty dirty looking...like dirty grease. I guess it depends what environment the cruiser was exposed to.
