Re: {Chrysler 300} 1962 300 Sport - Astradome Fun



If you’d like your speedo to look and operate as new, send it to Jeff Carter.  Here’s a pic of the one he just restored for me:

Today my kid & I decided to pull the Astradome out, as the Speedometer pointer was stuck at 15mph.

3 things happened:
  • 1. When pulling the Steering Wheel off…one must try too stuff the horn wire down in the steering column; so that the steering wheel puller can seat on top of the steering shaft.  Of course that horn wire is now 59 years old; so it is prone to split & break.  Does anyone have any helpful hints on what to do with that wire to get it down into the shaft simply? Or it is just a pain?
  • 2. Once the Dome was removed…my kid dropped it on the driveway; thus adding a San Andreas Fault crack in the polished & clear Dome.  Oh Yay!  Don’t have a spare dome.  Oh yay.
  • 3. Reassembled it all & now the Speedometer works again

Damn that Astradome is a pain to disassemble; but looks great day & night!

Thanks!
Matt Allyn
