Just thought anyone else might like to know what i found out. My reading about right. I have a 1.125 dia. drive roller.
The analog speedos are just cool and look good. I doubt they are 10 mph off.
Maybe not extremely accurate, like at 40 your doing 39 or 38 at worst. Watch out when you buy them as some offer them cheaper like some sellers on eBay but if you look close they are not in mph but kh.
