Well with all the different speed limits at the moment and the speedo in my 1966 xp ute not being exact i was thinking about installing a digital speedo, maybe mounted on the steering coloum. I found this one here from Jaycar: CLICK HERE
Just wondering if any one has used one of these or something similar and how successful it was.
i used a push bike speedo years ago, it was good, mounted sensor on rear brake drum and magnet on rim, it gave me speed, distance, time ect and calories burnt LOL
i had the fittest car around. had no light tho
We've got a place in Geelong called Howards Intruments, they do all that sort of stuff. Getting your Speedo right, Gauge Works is another in Geelong.
Dredd: i went into Howards Instruments because mine is out too (1970 xy), they asked a few questions and when they found out how old it was, they said that the speedo gear in the tranny wears, giving an incorrect reading. So just replace that and she'll be apples. I havent worried about it too much, because at the moment its pretty much exacly half. ie. 100kp/h reads 50mp/h on my speedo, or a little bit over, so if i sit on 50mp/h im just under the speed limit, keeps those demerit points off my licence, and my pay in my wallet.
There would have to be somewhere in Melb that does the same thing.
that and the fact that its not just a direct change over you have to change both cogs the one on your speedo sender and the one on the shaft in your gearbox,
it comes down to the roll out diameter of your tyres and your diffratio
