86 R80RT Speedo Repair

My speedo is acting up and not working properly, the needle floats around reading mostly lower than actual and the miles are not accumulating.

I have read about changing bad gears on the odo, but does that also fix the speedo needle floating?

Am I better off sending this out and if so to who would be best? Any inmates fix em?

He is purported to do a really nice job at a fair price.

These are two different problems. The odo problem is common to these gauges, but something else is going on with the needle - and can't guess at that one without seeing it.

These speedometers are actually two siamesed gauges - a speedometer and odometer packaged in one container. The odometer is gear driven off of the input shaft to the speedometer.

PM me if you're interested in having it repaired.
