1982 cj7 - speedo

Anyone have issues with the speedo needle swinging wildly across the gauge as you drive? can't figure out how to make is read "steady".

make sense?

Just working the little things out on this jeep. everything else fairly "tight"

Try to lubricate the spedo cable, or else it is internal to the speedometer and you will have to disassemble it to lube inside.

If it is not in the cable and if you ever have your speedo out, remove the needle and put a small drop of grease on the pivot point of the needle.
