odometer


TexasSteve

Recommended Posts

My 1980 911 sc odometer stopped, so I opened up the speedometer and found the little gear broken. I replaced it and put every thing back together. It was fairly easy as I found a couple of internet articles on this. Now the odometer works at 20 miles an hour or less but stops at speeds above about 20mph then starts back below about 20mph. I have reset the odometer reset button while driving but can see why that would cause a problem. The speedometer works fine. I pretty sure I hooked the wires back correctly. Any ideas guys and gals?

Don't these repairs need to be State certified? How will you ever be able to sell that car in the future?

I never heard of state certifications. Here in Texas you have send speedometers to California for speedo rapair according to Dallas Porsche dealer

So, did you?

1. The car will never be for sale as long as I live.

2. Since I fixed the little 20 tooth gear myself I ought to be able fix this problem, I'm just looking

for someone who has done it before to guide me. The speedo place wants $175+ to repair it.

3. The car is a 1980 with 165,000 miles and beside that I don't drive it but about 50 miles a month

during the Texas summer since every day is about 100 degrees and the Porsche a/c is made for

77 degree summers and I hate getting sweaty in a small coupe with new leather seats.

my 1979 has 326,000 miles, with a cold a/c. Of course I live on the cool northern California coast, so the temp nevers gets much above 75. But on trips inland, well, let's say that "I feel your pain." air-cooled engines and a/c never quite fit together. opening rear windows would help, but it's an SC after all, right? my a/c has a rotary compressor from PerformanceAire in Anaheim, CA. car doesnt stall as it did with the piston compressor, and even in very hot weather I'd rather have it than not. the car is for sale, a/c included.... Best, jl
