Speedo repair

I got some real nice repro parts to restore my 1948 Speedo. only problem is that it reads a real high speed, about 74 when I am doing under 40. I was using a Teds 47 Repro and that was always right on, Is there a way to calibrate these better or does taht magnet deal need to be replaced. Parts sat in my garage for 35 years.

Re: Speedo repair

Sounds like you have the wrong ratio combination of speedometer and drive gear. There are 1 to 1 and 2 to 1 ratios.
