RE: Speedometer Lube



Yes Paul, there should be a small hole on the shaft housing on the back of the speedo. It may have a wick or piece of cotton sticking up. I was able to free up a completely seized speedo in a 66 Charger by oiling the wick with 3 and 1 oil and running the speedo with a drill and a broken piece of speedo cable until it ran free. I did have to remove the speedo from the dash to get at the wick.

 

BTW The dash pad repair looks good in your pic.

While I've got my instrument cluster out of the car I'd like to address a small issue I'm having with my speedo.  While driving about every 5 seconds the needle will bounce a little.  Usually about 5-10 mph.  It will first drop down a few miles an hour and then bounce back up to the correct speed.  I have had the speedo cable out and lubed a few years ago first with liquid graphite and then a second time with Vaseline.  Neither one ever made any difference.  I'm wondering if there is a problem with the speedo head and a way to lube it?  I have an extra instrument cluster that I'm going to disassemble later today to get an idea if it's possible.  Butwould appreciate any input from someone who may have done this before.
