Default Re: Mechanical speedometer

I have had a bit more luck. But it didn't come easy. Speed indication was way out of whack!
Slowly massaged it by taking up on the hair spring. Finally got it to be accurate between 18 thru 32MPH. Odometer is still, and will remain out of whack. It is off by about 25%.

I did lube it with very light grease while apart. Nine hundred Mi. (actual Mi).
I run a cheepo solid state speedo right next to it for comparrison. Also radar check it whenever I can find one of those "YOUR SPEED IS".

Also bought a NOS caprie mech speedo(used but won't screw with it until this one fails).
I like the looks of analog style speedometers.

Merry Christmas
And happy holidays
