Re: speedometer vs. tire size
Mudsick, I agree get bigger tires![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]it really will make it read closer!
If you fooled around with some different larger sizes you actually could dial it in to be perfect! you might get lucky and get it right first try!
When you go to a speedo shop that's what they do, but instead of tires they swap the plastic gear the speedo cable hooks to in the Trans, sometimes it takes a few tries before they get it right, but instead of driving it around, they just run it on a "treadmill thingy" (urgh what's that thing called???[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]) (assuming we are talking about your '79)
