The red plastic pointer in the 238 can easily be replaced by a piece of small piece of normal installation wire. I choosed one with a red insulation. Fold the wire to combine the string and the elastic wire, and make a vertical end downwards showing in the window. - I also replaced the light bulbs by gluing a 6” strip of LEDs to the front plate. Gives a brighter and more uniform light on the red pointer.

But I need advice on how to route the dial string. I realize that a 2:1 gearing is required, but cannot see how to make it. There are three small rolers, two at the top and one at the bottom to guide the string, but how to make the gearing??

Can anyone point to a description or maybe a draft of the routing of the dial string?
