I thought the speedometer cable was bad.

It turned out to be that the speedometer mechanism was frozen.

There is actually more miles than this.

My Dad drove it for (?) years with a broken speedometer cable.

Wiring needs attention. Broken and exposed conductors. Stock wire

length too short for easy cluster removal. Also an electronic flasher was

installed. Future LED stop / tail / turn signal lights are a greatly needed upgrade.

Wiring length extended and wire-tied into a manageable loom for ease of

servicing. All new lamps. All connections crimped, soldered and heat shrunk.

I did not use LEDs in the cluster. I want that nostalgic look

that I remember when I was 8 years old.
