Good to know, thanks for that. Are you aware of any compatible mechanical
mph speedometer that has a resettable trip odometer?

Bob,

Somewhere I've got a speedo that I modified many years ago for our Eleganza.
I bought an early speedo that was badly worn at the Swap Meet at a GMCMI
Convention. I then went to the junkyard looking for a speedo that had all
the
right pieces in the right location. Found on in, IIRC, a Buick Special. I
don't
remember the year, unfortunately. Had a skillful friend cut the hole in the
face
of the GMC speedo. I will have to look for that unit when we get home.
I'm sure I've still got it somewhere. ( and I did mean somewhere)
