Hi, the speedo (it is scaled in km/h)on my gtv2.0 is no t working fine, it reads the speed but doesn`t count the kilometers travelled. I will try to have it fixed but I`ve been offered a solution that I am not sure if will work.

I`ve been offered a 1983 gtv6 british version speedo (the primary scale is in mp/h but has the km/h conversion) but I am not sure if it would work with my sending unit, and if it works, if the speedo will read accurately the speed and the miles travelled.

Does the sending unit on the gtv2.0 (alfetta gtv) is the same for the gtv6 considering they both have Veglia Borletti Electronic speedos, but they have different scales (one in km/h and the othe one in mph)?

Your help would be very appreciated as I need the speedo soon!!!

ps. I`ve reached the factory but paying 270euros including shipping for the speedo is way out of reach, 100 euros+shipping for a speedo in Italy is also way out of reach, and I can`t find one here in Peru!

If I were you, I'd look to Australia for a speedometer for your car - perhaps post in the Australian forum section as "WTB:" They had the same model available there, and they'd also be marked in km/h. Shipping to you in Peru might be less than from Europe??

Jeff, thanks for the suggestion, that`s waht I`ve done right now. I am searching for a used one here, unfortunately I found one but was no t working:(

Regarding the mp/h readings, I won`t make a deal about it since I`m familiar with american magazines so I hvae a good notion of the speed. Luckily this speedo including shipping is very well priced (shipping for speedo and sending unit is 8 pounds).

I`ll have this weekend as my deadline, I need to change the oil, and need the instrument, so I`ll probably go for the UK speedo unless something shows up.

Thanks, I will let you know.
