Gently pry with a small flat screw driver. Apply some penetrating oil first. It'll pop off.
Funny this came up... When I got my 52 the proof meter was as bad as yours. I had a decal made to match the face as it was toast. Rolled back the hour meter after the rebuild (don't tell the DMV :twisted: ) Cleaned it up, little gloss black on the housing, and re-installed
Still need a new cable though, sitting on 2/10 hours and using it couple times a week since July.
A door panel tool from auto supply would work good too.
The reels should measure hours (@ working RPM I might add) not miles. Hourmeter vs. odometer.
The black and white are for 1/10 hours I believe. Never seen the other reel. I have the one on the left.
