  • Speedometer Adapters

    Anybody have an E-mail or web site or mailing address or phone number of a Speedometer Shop that might have the adapters that go on the transmission where the cable screws in, and changes the speed of the cable up or down to get the speedometer closer to accurate ?

    Thanks

      You didn't specify the year and make, and electric vs mechanical...but here's some leads you can check out, from what I've gathered from looking in the past.

      Abbott enterprises, 2 ways: 1) they make custom cables and hook ups to change the ratio, or 2) look at "Cable X" and "ERA" both for "electronic" speedos but work great and gives YOU the ability to change it at will (by the way you can have speedo shops change mechanical to electrical, but sometimes it gets pricey)

      My 2nd one is the same as JDP:

      These guys will do the same as Abbott Enterprises, see above.

      Well, I thought I have more, but that's it. There are definitely more shops that do this work, just look up Speedometer shops online or in hemmings and give them a call and ask.
