Thanks guys-

For as long as I've owned the truck, the at rest needle was never visible- dropping below the "0" mark at a...

Speedometer Calibration

The odometer in my '56 with light duty 3-speed is remarkably accurate- within 2%. However, the speedometer reads 7 mph slow. The needle points to zero at rest. I have a 19 tooth gear on the cable....

I'm 6'5" and 200 lbs. The only issue I have is when moving from the gas to the brake, my right knee will graze the column shift if it's in 3rd gear. Not a problem though.

Thanks guys. Sometimes the simple solution eludes us I guess.
A pipe plug and a super magnet JB welded in the end did it.

Andy-

Does your speedo gear look like this one? The trans in my truck is the 1956 light duty 3 speed with column shift. Judging by the angle of the speedo gear hole, our transmissions are...

Transmission drain plug

Here is my 3-speed trans drain plug looking sad and wallered out.
Too big for the 3/8" drive and to small for the 1/2" drive. It's a good one because it has a little magnet on the other end, so I'd...

If the truck has been sitting that long, there are likely to be other issues that need attention more than that axle bearing. If it seems OK, put it back together, and focus on the brakes, cooling...

The flat metal tang stops the little schmeckle on the rotating part. That tang is easily bent with a long nosed pliers.

Figured it out.
There is a metal tang that the rotating part of the mechanism at the bottom rests against. It is easily bent one way or the other to achieve zero.

1956 Speedometer Needle Adjustment

So my speedo cable was making noise, so I am cleaning and lubing it. Since my speedometer has always read low, I pulled it out and apart and it appears to rest below "0 mph". The needle actually...
