Speedo glitch

Recommended Posts

I've been doing a search for the gitch problem on the speedo of my '83 turbo on the forum, but found none.

The speedo needle gives a bounce (drops down and then recovers) every quater mile! When this happen I can also hear a distinct 'tick' sound form the speedo.

I've oiled the cable but it made no difference. Iv'e also taken out the speedo, and driven it with a drill, but it didn't show the glitch powered this way.

I'm still suspecting the speedo, due to the 'tick' sound. Any advise?

But the way, even though my speedo proudly say mph on it, it has been set up to register Kmph. And the odo also count in km.

Try to search "speedometer" you willget lots of info on your problem. We all have had it or are having it. My '83 had severed in Canada for som time and was converted to read KM. I had it changed back in a re-build that didn't change the click to which you are reffering.
