160mph speedometer
« on: October 16, 2008, 03:09:25 PM »
I currently have a 100mph speedometer and would like to swap it for the 160. Does anyone know where I could find one for sale? Also will I need to make any gear changes?

I know that the 70-74 160mph will fit my year the 79. I'm having trouble finding one for under $100 though. Most are like 150 to $200.

I ended up just buying the whole cluster on ebay for like $120. I needed some bulbs on the back anyways.
I'll probobly end up buying the new 8000 Tach from classic industries. I can't seem to find one used in good condition anywhere.

I got my 160 speedo for $25 in 2000. Davey I have an 8000 tach if you are interested.

Thanks but no thanks rad. I decided just to buy the new tach to make sure it's all working good.
