The new speedo arrived on Thursday. 5 days. That’s a record for a package from the UK.
I’m now an expert at removing the dash panel and the speedo so without further ado… it’s out with the old and in with the new… Did you see what I did there 😉
When I recondition the clocks the bezels were changed from the black to chrome, mainly because of availability. The new speedo has an original black bezel, the old, a chrome one. As the fuel and charge indicator dial now have a chrome bezel, I need to swap the bezels on the speedometers.
As far as I know this is the 3rd speedometer. From the records I have on the vehicle, both the previous units were replaced around 140,000 km.
Roughly speaking LGL has done 300,000 km, or 500 km per month for 50 years.
