My speedometer is jumping. And it dos not keep the speed iam going its about 10 miles off. thanks mark
I don't think a bad cable will show a 10 mph difference. I think the head needs to be serviced. The cables go thru a transducer, but thats a 1 to 1 ratio and shouldn't do anything to slow the head down.
Good advice here. Had a similar problen with the tach on my 71. The connector was loose at the distributer.Found that out when I went to replace the tach drive gear and button with new parts $50.00 All I needed was some judicous tightening of the collar. Dont over look the speedo gear in the trans tail housing. Its plastic. Might be chippedi disagree some what. if the cable is stretched or frayed as mentioned above it will bind in the sheath and could be responsible for an erroneous reading. it could also be something as simple as one of the 4 connection points (at the trans, into and out of the cruise transducer, and into the speedometer itseld) has become loose and the tip isn't set into the receiver very well and is slipping. not that i think this is the problem, but you could have a defective speedometer gear at the transmission. it might have become brittle, one or more of the teeth might have chipped, it might have become stripped where the cable is set into it. i had a similar problem with a 71 el camino right after i had the transmission seals replace, and it was a loose fitting at the transmission cable end. took longer to get the car in the air that it did to make the repair, lol.
