    Guy & Gals,

    It seems my Vintage Reproduction Speedo has bitten the dust and I need a matching replacement for the rest of the gauges in my TDR. It is the type that came with many Fiberfab and CMC  kits 20 plus years ago. It is white faced with a stainless rim ( but could be a crackled black that I can remove ) and says as above – Vintage and at the bottom Reproduction.

    It is about 3 5/8″ to 3 3/4″ wide. If i can remember how to post a picture I will try posting one of my old broken unit.

    Please check your old stock and cabinets if you have one to spare.  PM me and we can talk off line and trade photos and pricing.

    Thanks for your help

    Thanks

    I will give them a call to see if they have one – don’t see one on the web site but maybe they have a few loose speedo’s

    Brad at MG Magic says he does not think he has one but said he would take a look at his old stock and get back to me but no luck so far.

    Anyone else have one sitting in a parts box?

    Assuming you are using a cable driven VW type of speedometer can you not just cannibalize a VW speedo and transplant the components into your defective one. Have read on either this forum or Speedster one that there is an outfit in US that can do repairs/transplants but have not bookmarked site as I use a GPS speedo. Ed is active on the Speedster site so he may be able to find it faster than I can

    Good to hear from you.

    I had not thought of just replacing the cable tie-in area. I may have a VW speedo around here someplace and now have a backup plan. Not sure if the innards are the same but I guess I can find out. It looks like I have to pry the metal edge of the face back to open it up.

    The repair places charge as much for repairing a speedo as buying a whole set of lower end gauges so will do that as a last resort.

    I really think there is a speedo out there someplace as thousands were made – hopefully one shows up shortly.

    Thanks

    Well I was able to temp fix it and put a new cable in but still looking for a replacement – let me know if you see one.

    Thanks
