Speedometer rebuild and modification

Post by Willie_B » Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:27

The new trans for my MKI moke has a 3.44fd. I had several that I took apart for spares and learning. Learned that there are several differences between early and later ones. In an effort to have the speedometer read somewhat close, when I took it all apart to clean I changed the inside unit to a 1280 tpm one. Took the odo completely apart to clean and lightly lube so hopefully it will turn over better. Used a drill to drive it to make sure it works, only took three tries. Repainted the inside with a gloss paint hoping to get more light for the face. Used a digital laser tach (off ebay) to measure the drill speed so I would know where 60mph is to re-install the needle. New glass, jewels and chrome bezel. I reset the odo to 00000 as I figure it will be a new vehicle when done. That is not tracked on vehicles over 25 years old here. One more part done in the build.
