Speedometer Question???????

286 Views 10 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  THachiya
Alrighty. I finally broke my stock Mustang speedometer (don't ask how). I have a new (mechanical) Autometer Speedo with 0 miles coming. I display 10,000 miles on my old Mustang speedo. What is the best way to put 10,000 miles on my new Autometer speedo (without driving it another 10,000 miles)? Any suggestions? I'm thinking a small electric motor attached to the speedo cable and several days later. Ideas?

I went both routes, the first time, I took a small DC motor connected to part of my speedo cable (the donor cable had broken due to being too close to the headers) and let it run for about 3 days. I then decided that the 85mph speedo just didn't look right, got a 140 and played with the pin and gears, took a little time, but not nearly 3 days (I recommend this option)!!
