Default speedometer

in case you were wondering just what was under that pretty face. we had to change the one in the 53 as the head was frozen and the needle was broken even knocked off the shaft. so here is one apart. the u shaped piece is the magnet that is connected to the cable. it drives the drum that is connected to the needle. the odometer is driven off a set of gears starting behind the magnet.

I have no Ida what the mileage is on this car as it was broken when I got it but it now has 97 grand on it. I found another unit that was in bad condition rusty and sun faded and made one out of the two.

tested it out with the drill on high speed the drill does 60
