How do I swap analogue odometer reading between old and new speedos?
If you have to replace a speedo, how do you transfer the (analogue/mechanical) odometer reading? Can you actually swap the odometer itself between speedos, or do you have to manually adjust each digit on the new odo? If the latter, does it require special tools?
My speedo needle is broken. I will get a new speedo from a junkyard. When I do, the reading on its built-in odometer will obviously not be the same as the reading on the odometer of my faulty speedo. I will need to make the odometer reading on the new speedo match the reading on the old one so that the correct mileage reading stays with my ZJ. How do I do this?
Can I swap the odometer assembly from the old speedo to the new, or do I just have to adjust each digit manually on the new speedo to get the odometer reading to match the old one?
No offence intended, but I have to say that I'm skeptical that it really is a dealer-only job. When I get my new speedo I'll try disassembling the old one to see if the odometer is removable and swappable; it may just be a matter of a few screws. If you're right, I'll allow you to say "I told you so"
