I have a speedometer that reads about 10 mph too high (with tires near stock diameter), and with a broken odometer. I figure my options are:
1. Tear into it myself, hope the odo problem is the typical stripped gear, and try to reset the speedo needle correctly.
2. Send it off, and wait. What's the going rate these days for this work?
3. Buy a used replacement. What's the going rate for that?
I want one that looks nice, but not concours. And works.
Just got mine back from Overseas Speedometer Repair. Repaired odo, cleaned, lubed, and calibrate. $165.00 + S&H. Haven't installed it yet but should be ok.
From previous history on speedometer repair, it seems like Palo Alto Speedo Repair is the go to place. I had my speedometer repaired at a local speedometer repair shop near me. With 195/65R15 tires at freeways speeds, I am 10mph off. http://paspeedo.com/
If I remember correctly, most people in these parts use North Hollywood Speedometer.
Apparently really good with the German stuff.
I think I remember hearing about North Hollywood speedo. Been a while since I looked up speedometer repair in the search section.
I had Hartmut at Palo Alto Speedo do all of my gauges and they all came out like jewelry. I run a later 911 electric speedo (for the extra digit on the odometer) and it is GPS driven and dead accurate.
North Hollywood did the recalibration on mine to read correct for non-OEM size tires. Nice work.
Thanks, guys. Can you share the cost you paid?
I would send to John Bell / JBell959 on pelican. He posts here occasionally. Good guy and reasonably priced. The big gage companies have gotten a bit crazy on pricing.
