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?

The gears that drive the odometers will be different.
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.

I'm a little late to this thread because I have been searching for my MPH decal that was out on my Montreal when it was U.S. certified. I took it off, but saved it. Here is a photo. If someone wants to make replicas I can lend it out, but would want it back.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your kind offer. We are trying to get a clear plastic overlay like the one shown in post #27. Did you notice that a paper speedometer overlay, just exactly like yours but yellowed is shown in post #35?

Mark and Tom,

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.

Brian,

What are you planning to do, use the hash marks and transfer the numbers to an inner ring on a clear static cling sheet? Either way, I have confidence in you and look forward to seeing the finished product.

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.
