15/12/2005 17:58:25   tom   hi, i have got an old saab speedo to fit my 1976 saab 96, i am making a custom dashboard, as i really don't like the stock one! anyways i am wondering is there anyway of fitting this much older speedo? i think its a very early v4 or possibly a 2 stroke, i can fit the gauge ok but the cable has a different fitting! will i have to change the cable? is there one that will fit? and is there somewhere to get it from? is this too much hassle! i really like the look of the earlier speedo and have custom gauges for the rest of the imstruments which i want to fit! hope someone can help!

many thanks

I would have thought if you cannot find a proper cable you could have the instrument end changed at an instrument/repair specialist like Speedograph-Richfield Ltd, 104 Rolleston drive, Arnold,Notts. Telephone 0115-9264235 Fax 9209912.
I hope these Nos are correct as my directory is quite old.
