Re: [DML] "1980's Delorean Speedo Cable Fix"



I've only checked my speedometer against GPS.  The thought of checking the
odometer never did occur to me since they both use the same cable but I
will be sure to check it.  The interstate system in the USA makes it very
easy to check the odometer because of the mile markers.  Next time I am on
the interstate with it I'll check the accuracy.

Thanks,
