Hi All
My bezel is dinged and the glass is cracked, also itís in MPH and I need KPH. To top it off, the needle bounces around like crazy some times between zero and 50mph.

I would like to replace it. Can I do a straight swap to a KPH or is there some calibration required. See photos below, I currently have the red numbers MPH.

Should be a straight swap. Newer repops are lower quality than the originals though.

(btw, if yours is original... I need mph and I'd be happy to try and rebuild it . Let me know if you would be interested in selling.)

Hi
Thanks for the heads up. Maybe I will just buy the glass and trim ring. I go to Italy most years, near Milan, so I might try to hunt an original down. Is there a way of telling if itís original.
Cheers
