Cool idea but you can also send your old one and the new one to a VDO service center ( there is one in Greensboro NC) and they can set it for you.

I doubt they will fix anything other than a VDO unit.
You will need to call them on pricing and process.

Speedo Removal

Thanks for all of the input. I spoke with Lauderdale speedo and they said they can fix it if I send it down there. I cant figure out how to disconnect the wiring. Do I pull the individual wire or does this black piece pull out like a harness? I cant seem to get either one to work. I don't want to break it. The individual wires look like they are held in by a little clip but I cant seem to get it to release. Any Ideas?

Good luck. let us know price and quality of service. will you ask if they can set odometer to specific value, and additional charge if so?

The speedo head uses an 8-way connector, which should just pull out -

You don't need to remove the wires and terminals from the connector housing.

Just wanted to post a follow up from my earlier post on Hollywood Speedo. Finally got the speedo back and installed. The odometer works perfectly. They must have tightened the speedo somehow because it seems to be wound tight. I can be going 45 mph and then come to a stop, it takes about 5 seconds for the gauge to go to zero. Same thing when accelerating. There is a lag. Hoping that it gets better with time.

send it back ... don't hope it will get better ... or at least call them for advice.
