I need some help ya'll... I took my speedo apart to adjust ( move back ) the miles it to start over since this car is a frame off restoration. I took it all apart and had everything in order to put it back together.
it would have worked except I hadnt planned on a bat to fly in my garage and hit me in the head and cause me to scream like a girl and flay my arms around and knocking everything everywhere !!! Needless to say I think I got it back together very close but no cigar. Can anyone post a pic of their speedo assembly numbers facing you and a topographical view so I can see all the numbers wheels and assembly on the backside. If anyone else tries this be careful, I touched one number and it turned to dust !!! so somewhere in my speedoI will have a blank instead of number, HA HA so be careful and not to touch the numbers. I used a tooth pick to adjust them when I got it back together.

Charley I learned not to mess with a speedo at an early age, Hee! Hee! I don't mess around with the ometer or even the dial they are too easy to get out of whack, Rule by thumb on the speedo , Now that is just my opinion . If it is working don't mess with it. I hope it wasn't a 150 Mph. Smile

no, it was the standard 120MPH... I was rebuilding the assembly and applying the new WHITE face gauges. I wanted to try the white face gauges just to be a little bit different. I got it back together but im not sure I have the retainer clips on right, there seems to be some play in them now. I hope someone has a pic of theirs so I can compare mine to it.

Sorry that happened.



Those are cool pictures because I have never seen what they looked like before on the inside, looks like they go on the same way like the bicycle speedometers do.

My numbers will stay this way too. Besides, if I took it apart, I would never get it back together. Very Happy
Bats get in my house sometimes if I leave the door open at night. I keep a long handled fish net in the closet to catch them and put them back out side but I never scream because it could frighten the little guys. Hee! Hee!

Every summer, I have a colony of bats that come back and live behind an open barn door. When it gets dark, about a hundred of them fly out of a small crack, off into the night. After a half hour, no more mosquitos! That is why I leave them alone.

The only problem i have with them, is the droppings will rust bare metal, and spoil primer on a car. I just cover up what needs to, or coat bare metal with a light oil, and no more problems.

---John

I lived in a old farm house growing up. There were Bats in the attic and they would start to come out at dusk every night. Yes bats CAN carry rabies. Any warm blooded animal can give you rabies if they have it. Old wives tale was that they would aim for your hair and get tangled in it. I think that was to get kids to leave them alone. I am now 65 and have yet to hear of a case of a person getting rabies from a Bat. Ugly little critters.

Got that right Jim, They aren't the best looking little guys, I guess they hang out in barns and caves and places like that. I have never had much dealing with them. Can't say that I really wanted to. Hee! Hee!

When I was about eight, I would go down to the lake and watch the fisher men and there wife's come in at dusk. I would take a long stick and tap on the eaves so the bats would fly out. The woman would scream and cover the heads with things. I found them fascinating.

I was almost a person that got rabies from a bat. Good thing I didn't! Very Happy
Well, anyhow, I was out camping in the mountains here in Idaho, not far from Mountain Home, by a creek. This happened during the daytime, and bats aren't supposed to come out during the daytime.
So, here I was, and a bat come flying at directly at me with foam coming from it's mouth. (When a creature has foam coming from it's mouth, it has rabies.) It would have bit me if I had not whacked it away, with the only thing I had on hand at the time, my umbrella.
Don't really know why I had an umbrella at the time cause it wasn't raining, it just happened to be sitting there outside of the camp trailer, so I grabbed it, and whacked the bat with it, and the bat flew off.

Speaking about Cujo, when I was still going to high school, (I am graduated now), the day after I watched the movie Cujo, this Saint Bernard that looked exactly like Cujo came to the school, and stood outside the school wandering around.
