Re: alright, the speedo, the needle and the spring, how exactly (grayfox)

There is a little white hash mark about a 1/4 inch down from the thing that the needle rests on when the car is not moving. Install the spring and needle at this hash mark, then raise the needle up to rest on that stopper and that is the correct tension.
