Re: [DML] Speedometer Calibration



Lucky me, I just happen to have the old burned up binnacle from 
crash and burn, with all of instruments still in it.  I'll take the 
speedo apart and see how it works.  I was going to make a display on 
the history of the car, I still can, just have to reassemble the 
thing.  I don't think any of them work anyway.

Now what would be wild is pulling the binnacle thats's in C&B, and 
putting the orginal in and see if anything even works.
