I'm trying to get my speedometer needle to read zero once it's installed. I seem to recall reading a thread on here a while back where someone explained the procedure but I can't find it via search. Is there anything special to getting this thing aligned on the stud so that it read correctly?
It’s easy to install the needle. Gently place the needle at about 60 mph and turn it counter clock wise while pushing downward on the center area. As you get closer to 0 just push a little harder. If you don’t get it right the first time try again. You remove the needle in the same manner only instead of pushing inward you pull outward.
Ok, I'll give that a shot. I think I had it at about 45-50 when I pushed it on but I better take then lens off and try it again. Once I get this on and the vacuum issue settled I'll be putting in your carpet next willcox.
Well, I just broke the needle shaft trying to pull mine off. Now what??
I did the same thing. I was able to glue the shaft and make it work until I got a new one. When you got the 140MPH unit did you have to swap out the driven gear to get it to read correct? I just put a 120MPH face on my old unit thinking that I could get a larger gear to make it correct but the TH350 doesn't have a gear with enough teeth to make it correct. Haven't gotten around to getting it just right yet
