Odometer reads 76% actual miles
With stock BFG ATs and rims on my '94 D-90 my speedometer is reading just about spot on, but my odometer is reading about 76% of the actual miles driven. This problem is more of a nuisance than anything else, but I am hoping some of you Defender gurus can help tell me how to fix it.
I am a bit surprised that whatever internal cable gearing is incorrect does not also affect the speedometer. It taxes my mathematical skills to constantly have to multiply my mileage by 1.24% to find out how far I have really gone (naturally I use 1.25% so my brain cells do not rebel).
It peeves me that the steeler who sold me this truck (Land Rover American Fork, Utah) knew full well that the odometer reading was only 76% of the actual miles the truck had driven, yet sold it based on the miles shown on the odometer. I do not want to be guilty of the same crime if, by some unforeseen reason, I have to someday pass the truck onto someone else. Of course, the odometer problem is only one of the misrepresentations put forth by the steeler, but such is life. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
