I have been looking for an instrument cluster for my 1986 Alfa Spider Quad for sometime and the prices for a used speedometer is $300 to $350 and I think that’s maybe too high ? I am considering aftermarket, so does anyone have in suggestions? Thanks

There are calibration potentiometers ("trim-pots") on both the speedometer and tachometer that go flaky with age. You may be able to repair your existing speedometer by replacing the potentiometer if you're handy with a soldering iron. Take a look here.

The speedo does work and I hear you can buy an odometer gear but I just bought a working cluster instead.

I took it to a Alfa specialist in Charlotte, NC and he took the speedometer out. Come to find out that someone had removed it at one time and remove some connections.

It's always fascinating finding out previous owners' bodge jobs. I just found out whoever redid the headgasket on my car set the cam timing way out. I'm surprised the car ran as well as it did.

Here are images of the cluster, i purchased it along with some other parts in a package deal. Have been told it was refurbished but looks clean and intact.

If you think its right for your car I think 250for the whole thing is fair. Where do you need it shipped to?
