Got a guy on the Willys Tech list with a 3B that has a speedometer that is not working. Needle moves not at all.

Odometer works.

Suggestions as to what is up, how to fix?

Thanks,

Pull the speedo and there should be a cable behind it. Pull that cable all the way out, spray it with some white lithium grease and put it back in.

if the odometer works but not the needle it's an internal issue. either a misaligned gear or the needle is loose on the pin

My money is on #2. Happens even in the CJ's. You can tell pretty easily if the needle bounces (even vibrates) at all upon acceleration.

Good luck!
