    I bought a beater this weekend and speedometer doesn't work right.At 30 mph it reads 5mph and at 55 mph it reads 15 mph.The guy I bought it from says he put a new speedometer in and it made no difference.


    Any Ideas

    Thank Hubert

    Probably need to replace the speedo drive gears in the transmission.

    I bet there is a roll pin on the drive gear that is bad/gone/missing...............
