Replacement/ repair for GLHS 396

Hey everyone, I have found that my speedometer hairspring is shot. I pulled the speedometer apart and found the hairspray and I'll mangle that. This may have been my fault but not sure. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement hairspring? Or possibly a replacement speedometer? Would really like to get the speedometer back to good shape!

Thanks in advance!

Re: Replacement/ repair for GLHS 396

I might actually have a replacement GLHS (w/the 125MPH overlay sticker) speedometer...but I am sure that I at least have an 85MPH L-body speedo with something like 55K original miles and I know for sure that it is in good working order. PM me here if interested and I'll check to be sure.

Re: Replacement/ repair for GLHS 396

mileage on the old mechanical odometers is redundant
you simply pop the clip off , pull it apart and restack the tumblers as you need them

also to note
the first zero on the left .. when looking at a low mileage odo ,
IF that first zero IS NOT CENTERED in the window .. it's got more than 99 999 miles on it or someone's been fiddlin' wit it

That's good to know. Luckily the o e I bought is pretty close. Whithin a few thousand miles. I'll probably just leave it for now. But the new Speedo is working good. Just need an overlay. I wish fwd didn't charge the same for shipping as the overlay costs otherwise I would jump right on it.
