  13. Calculating Speed Using Tachometer

    Miscellaneous Discussion
    My old speedometer is hardly accurate. The one time I clocked it against a radar sign, the sign gave me a reading of 40mph and my speedometer was wobbling like a drunken sailor all around the 45-55mph range. I have also been barreling along the highway BEHIND other people where the speed...

    I noticed my speedo isn't working all of a sudden (pulled it into the driveway, took her for a spin for groceries and pow! nothing!) so I have to ask, are the little gears inside prone to failure? I took apart the front hub and lined up the connecting notches and all that drives it from the...
