I just got my 97 center console like a week ago. How did u do the 145 speedo? What car do you take it out of? And how do you fix the odometer?

94-95 SC's.. might be other years, not entirely sure.

Very carefully you can use needle-nosed vise grips to grip the gears that turn the numbers and pry it up enough to turn the number to where it needs to be.

Due to the angle the last two are a bit harder to do, but less than 99 miles I wasn't worried about and spun it by hand the rest of the way. (using the gear on the trip odometer)

Nah, you just pry it up enough to move them then put it back down. Might be off a few tenths of a mile but if you just match up how yours looks to how the other one looks...

Note I tacked on a few hundred miles between the time I put it in and this picture.


And yeah it's a direct swap, tear the dash apart and pull out the old speedometer and then put in the SC one in. Only difference in the clusters is the middle top gauge.
