Just got my cluster back from Kevin and as you can see he did an awesome job. My cluster wasn't too bad but Kevin really made it look nice, and he only had it a few days.
Good as new.

Hi Kevin,

I took my speedo/gauge cluster apart last night and saw that the round circular part that sits right above the odometer has been riding on the odometer and has rubbed the paint off of two of the number wheels and has worn down one end of the odometer "roll".

It also looks like the plastic gear is boggered up and two of the four cast head pins are broke. I'm assumung thats what allows it to lean and rub.

So my question to you is. What would it be to replace or rebuild this one.

The rool and gears are shot. I guess I could make something for the pins. And the head really needs to be oiled. It is really sticky.

No honey, thats always been on my bronco!!!

I would have to take a look at your cluster to be sure, but it sounds like the head pins, odometer drum and gear just need replacing. There would be a small fee for the parts but the installation and labor are included in the $50.00 refurbishing fee. I would be happy to take care of it for you.

Thank you,

Kevin

Kevin,
The speedo on my 77 bounces wildly as I go down the road and also makes a jingling sound like a bell. Have you seen this before and can it be fixed easily?

Thanks,

Usually what you are describing is an indication that the balancing weight has come loose. Every time the weight spins around it hits the housing and sounds like a bell this is also more than likely what is causing the needle to bounce. This can be fixed but it requires disassembling the head unit. As long I can fix the balancing weight there would not be any extra charge.

Thank you,

Kevin
