Interior / Re: Speedometer Noise
« Last post by Nexus on January 16, 2019, 04:25:07 PM »
Is the clicking coming from inside the car or does it seem to be an external noise?

If it's inside:

If you can, definitely try to remove it and once out, verify that the cable is in fact not the issue....oil or grease it up how ever you see fit...put it back in and if it doesn't go away then it may be an issue inside the cluster....maybe the mileage counter or the gearing inside the speedo.

I have never had this issue before but those are things I would to try and diagnose the problem.

If it's outside, then it may be the small plastic gears that go into the transmission but I'm really thinking its not that...I would disconnect the cable from the tranny and speedo and start with that.

Are the fuel lines meant to suit a 79 with 400? Did the car not have them to check?
Interior / Speedometer Noise

I couldn't find a similar post regarding speedometer noise, so I started this new one.  My 1980 Trans Am speedometer has an annoying clicking sound that increases and decreases with speed, so I am thinking the speedometer cable needs lubricating.  The needle is smooth and does not jump, just makes noise.  My thoughts are to remove the dash to access the cable connection to the back of the dash and spray graphite into the cable housing.  What I have read on the internet is to pull the cable and coat with light grease but I am not sure I have the ability to do that.  Could anyone advise? I live in Grand Forks North Dakota and I don't think any mechanics or dealerships know how on work on a car of this vintage.  Every time I have had it worked on it comes back with additional issues or scratched paint.

Hello, and welcome back...glad to hear things have settled down for you and sorry to hear you lost your parents...that is never easy

Your right...there is lots of info on doing an LS swap and if you can read, follow instructions, take your time and be sure of things and possess a we bit of mechanical inclination then you'll do just fine with the swap. As far as the shaker goes, I have seen both mounted to the hood and the engine. I prefer the engine but it will require a custom fabbed base as it will sit differently on the LS block...with a little thinking, planning trial and error, you can get it to mount to the engine. Glad to hear you kept your bird. I have kept mine for close to 20 years but sadly I have only driven it once!!

Good luck and post pics of how it is coming along!!
