Suggestions on repair to Speedometer. Needle works but odometer doesnt.
As "JackA" noted, pull it apart, clean off the old grease.. That's the "starting point"..
Generally speaking, the old grease starts to solidify to a point the Odemeter/Speedometer "drive gears"
can no longer turn against stiff resistance.. Then the (often) steel drive gear just chews-thru the phenolic
gears..
I repaired both the Tach and Speedo in my 1953 Jaguar XK120 by taking the units apart, cleaning everything,
regreasing (with a lighter weight grease) and reassembling.. That was some years ago and they still work..
The tough part is getting the "speedometer" to actually READ correctly!!
Hope this helps, some..
