tom freiberger Hope it works for you.

ossodiseppia @tom freiberger, the sticker arrived safe and sound. I'm starting on it.

Thank you.

If you ever send yours out for servicing, they will get calibrated.

I remember from my 'running man' days that: 10K = 6.2 Miles or 100K = 62 miles.

The hash marks are going to be a guide. Those hash marks radiate out from a central point. That point being the pivot of the needle. Getting that angle right is critical.....................for me. :-)

You and I are probably going to be sending a lot of emails and text messages on this.

We can make this work. If Tom is willing to mail it to me, I can scan it and use it for the graphics. The important thing is those tick marks.

Yves, were you talking about the gears inside the speedometer that turn the odometer numbers for indicating mileage or kilometers traveled? My concern is to have a fairly accurate indication of speed traveled, the mileage or number of kilometers covered is of less importance (thanks to Google Mapping).

The Montreal parts book shows only one 'speedometer drive assembly' that plugs into the transmission. It is on TAV 44, Alfa p/n 105.64.13.042.02.

Similarly the parts book only shows one speedometer cluster on TAV 126 (pg. 375) Alfa p/n 105.6464.014.00 Jaeger p/n 391.208.01; although we know that there are two or at least two 'faces'. Only one speedometer face is shown Alfa p/n 105.64.64.014.00/01. Perhaps a later book shows two speedometers.

Thank for the picture. It's no problem for me to draw this kind of detail.

Brian, that is a true Imperial units speedometer with metric numbers inside, like Robo330's (Karl's) photo below yours. Most of us have metric speedometers, which unfortunately did not come complete with any Imperial units.

ossodiseppia This is going to be a very interesting challenge. I'm rather particular about the details and will probably need to get one of these in my hands. The lines at 2,3,4,5,6.... are at some unknown angle. I'll need to replicate those exact angles so that I can figure out where the MPH "lines" are supposed to go.

If anyone has one of these clusters disassembled, a high resolution scan (not a picture) of the speedo face would be most appreciated. If I can't get that, I will have to figure all of that out with a protractor. Remember those?
