Thanks guys-
Kinda figured the gear was correct based on the accurate odometer.

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.

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...

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...
