Re: LeRoar's trip



The only speedometer I ever took apart did not have a direct coupling to the needle. It was two magnets facing each other. One was spun by the cable, and the other would try to stay with it because of the magnetic attraction.....................................MO

No I think the issue is in the gears internally in the speedo. Probably getting sloppy. There have been several pinions used with the same issue and even two different trans.

If not the cable or speedo mechanism, I think the only thing left is the speedo gear in the tranny.  Of course, I could be wrong...

Seems like I saw "somewhere" a GPS receiver rigged to drive an analog mechanical speedometer, or maybe that's wishful thinking.

No it's been all apart and has a new cable. I cleaned it all up and lubricated the wick. Sometimes it even stays on zero for a few blocks and then pops up.

Sounds like your speedometer and/or cable needs a little cleaning and lubrication. 

50 years of wear and tear from internal friction versus a near instantaneous satellite signal.

Yep the miles should be good as I'm using Garmin. My speedo must have an internal issue as it bounces around and doesn't stay steady. Garmin shows about 5% fewer miles than the speedo.

Rich, hope your road trip continues  with much enjoyment...no issues. You sure your miles are correct?  That mpg doesn't sound right.   Brutus is getting better mpg than that, and I have 3:55 rear gears --28" diameter rear tires. And a few mpg abuses  with spirited accelerations!  Have fun...............................MO

Yep you're right and I've been good on the throttle. The car originally had a 2:76 but that's not in the equation now.

Have 2:76 gears in the wagon – never have checked MPG – Life’s too short for that – but a 4bbl is a 2bbl until you put a heavy foot into it..............  ; )

Hi Rich,

 

Crazy idea.  Run a two barrel converter plate on your intake and get yourself a Holley two barrel.  Maybe just for the long trips.  My guess is with a nice air cleaner no one would even notice when popping into car shows.

 

By rules we have to run an adapter plate / two barrel on the circle track car and our motors run strong.  Just sayin'

After all these years I finally got LeRoar ready for the road. My wife and I traveled up to our old town of Harrison, NE way up in the NW corner of NE.  It was Sioux County fair time and they had a parade on Saturday. We entered LeRoar in the parade and had a nice time. We drove a total of 1130 miles and averaged 11.3mpg with a per mile gas cost of 22 cents.  It did run well but obviously I should be able to get better mpg since it has been tamed down. I have 3:23 gears, 2000 stall, SS-X manifold, 264 cam and a 600 Eddy which is leaned down to about position 5 on the chart. I'm considering trying a 500 Eddy. I do have a stock converter which only has about 500 miles on it and I could swap it in.  But that sounds like work!  Anybody have any input on that idea?

 

In October my wife and I will drive LeRoar down to Houston for a Halloween Car Show. That will be about a 2000 mile trip. It's good to start driving it more.  I'd be glad to share some pictures but windows 10 and I don't get along well. Maybe computers and I don't get along well !
