Well how else is the dial supposed to turn if there is no motor to turn it and no fuse to regulate the current going to the motor?
My best guess is if they didn't do it the way they did, they could have used a series of gears and shafts off of the drive shaft to convert the power coming out of the engine into something that could be used for the odometer...
Hahaa. I think it is pretty simple for a spinning dial odometer. The digital ones are the ones that are more simple.
