Default Re: Mechanical speedometer

Do the nuts go to the end of the axle on both sides? It would be a shame not to hook it up and miss all the frustration and head aches these cheap speedometers give you.
They can be somwhat accurate but it takes a lot of TLC.
Axles are cheap, don't let that stop you.

I guess I have a cheap speedo for sale really cheap now. Maybe I will just leave it on there to look cool and not install the cable.
